Small hike up a hill rewarded by great views of Dieppe. Most exhibits in French only so could do with English translation but overall a nice way to spend an hour or so walking around.

Really enjoyed going round the musee and the art exhibition. Saw a Renoir, Sickert, and Dufy. Definitely worth the small entrance fee. Fabulous views over Dieppe.

A wonderful chateau housing a rather unusual mix of exhibits. The ivory work is beautiful as are the beautiful ship models. The maps were fascinating. The adjacent (free) views over the town (and the goats) are well worth seeing

Classic grim old castle on a cliff. Inside, a sweet little art collection, with many seascapes, a few by well-known artists. Its extensive carved ivory includes professional and sailors' carvings out of the past. It's a nice walk up, where there's a wonderful overview of...More

The building is great and the goats outside are an added bonus. Inside the friendly receptionist spoke English (although we didn't need that, but it's helpful). The displays are very varied and the view superb.

After a good lunch we decided to go for a long walk to the Chateau not knowing what to expect. The views were worth the walk alone. We have seen enough museums to be a bit jaded but thought we would try it. The range...More

We enjoyed the views from the castle and there are some fine pictures (Renoir, Pissaro) in the museum.

Not clear what the exhibition is about, just a non appealing entrance and a price. We like museums, but no clue what the subject was. Surrounding castle was magnificent.More
