This museum is presented in the old prison across several rooms, including upstairs. They have a lot of original Norman artifacts from furniture to women's head wear. Sadly, all descriptions are in French with no attempt to educate the non speaker in this very touristy...More

In two well presented old houses you get a vivid picture of what life was like over centuries. Beautiful textiles, furniture, ceramics all displayed to tell the story of old Normandy

While the museum contained some interesting items (such as traditional Norman women's head gear and lace-making bobbins), there was little explanation in English or French. The museum could benefit from more explanatory text.

There are nine rooms to see which is deceiving from the road. Very interesting and worth the stop. You can purchase a combined ticket to see other places. Helpful staff.

Probably wouldn't have seen this on it's own, but an interesting exhibition if you get it as a bonus. Wouldn't want to do this in high tourist season though, narrow staircases and small rooms. Mid-September is a great time to visit Honfleur

We would not have gone to this museum a few blocks from the Honfleur old dock, except for the special price for two museum tickets, coupled with the more well-known maritime museum on the old dock. It is located around the corner in a small...More
