We bought a ticket for four museums and this was one of them. It was an interesting view of old Honfleur and how a merchant may have lived. Worth a visit if you have the time

This small museum is tucked away on a small street so you may have to search for it. It displays the living conditions of people during the middle ages. I have never seen anything like this museum; it is truly unique.

So one of your reviewers was too late to get in, and one ran away! We too, have only seen the outside, but that alone is worth pausing for. We did not realise it was a museum, but the outside is a beautiful sight. Old,...More

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!

This Museum is interesting both on the inside and the outside . The collection had elements from the Old France and from La Nouvelle France !

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.
