Do not waste your money in any museum on Mont Saint Michel. The whole place IS a museum anyway. (And of course the Abbey not only worth the 10euros but it is a MUST SEE.) "Prisons and dungeons" seemed attractive but it is a complete...More

9 euro per person for 3 rooms of non specific objects. The highlight was the tranquil garden at the rear. Such a Shame as it could be a really informative visit. No translation to really understand purpose but gist of attraction is to see how...More

Very few and unmaintained pieces of furniture. Feels like a scam (once again in this place) as this should not be called a museum in any way.

Nothing really to see and you won't learn anything. Part of a set of museums included in one ticket. Dreadful and purely designed to extract money. Avoid!!!!

Bought tickets at 2:30 pm and 2 of the 4 locations were closed by 5. What we saw was marginal. No hours posted and we were not informed of closing time.

There is so much to see during your time here. Take it all in. Don't rush through. We went with a small group and the tour guide was fabulous. Can't wait to visit again.

Pleasant looking entrance, but then things go downhill from there. Some boat models are present, then rooms with uninspiring dioramas, then a blackout supposed "sound & light" event. Only worthwhile aspect was the small rear garden.Avoid & do other things....

Very disappointed in this museum - not enough information on things on display, I still don't know what some of the things were (and the story behind some of the wax figures??). Waste of time & money. Tourist trap. Don't go!! Save your money!!
