This many-roomed museum features rooms set out in historical detail with many fascinating exhibits. You can get a two-museum ticket (e.g. for this and the Musée de la Marine) - a great deal!

We stil had at least a hour to vist the museum but the "concierge" was not really happy to see us. So we ran away. Sad and I 'm mostly a very extrovert person.

Even if you don't go inside, you can appreciate this museum as a masterpiece of an ancient building, it is like walking through history in the streets of Honfleur - a very special place

This museum is housed in a medieval building which is interesting in itself. The collection is eclectic but interesting.

Sorry Boudin, I'm a fan of studying and learning more about the long history of charming Honfleur. Amazing what changes Honfleur has been through over the ages. Enjoy ....

This "museum" contains a collection of artifacts covering many years -- most of which are not organized in any way to make them accessible. 19th century items are mixed with 16th century items and the explanatory signage is quite limited (even if you read French)....More

Small little museum that takes about 20 minutes to walk through. My wife enjoyed more than me. With the Honfleur Museum Pass it is effectively free if you see the Boudin and Satie exhibits.

Worth a visit to see how people lived in old Honfleur, the rooms were set out in an interesting way. Wouldn't be any good for wheelchair users as no access. Also shut for 2 hours at lunchtime so make sure you time your visit carefully.
