This is a small exhibit in Honfleur. It’s an old small house with a bunch of rooms. The rooms are full of a hodge podge of displays about life in old times in the town. Some costumes, old furniture, old vessels. Not very interesting. We...More

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

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
