The signs on the front suggest knights, dungeons and tours - the inside provides random poems written on posters, biggest unofficial model ship collection in Europe and 1980's French videos uncomfortably forcing you to stay a watch (even though I don't speak French) to get...More

Part of a set of museums included in one ticket and managed to be the worst of a bad bunch. Some models of ships from around the world and two videos in French. Dire. Avoid.

Very boring old-fashioned museum. There are some videos that may be interesting but they are exclusively in French without translation and my knowledge of French is insufficient to understand them.

Same story since 20 years, same walls..... just avoid all the museums. MONEY WASTE. No investment on the renewal of the subjects and the scenes.

Don't waste money, there is not much to see. I expertes to see more historical pieces, but walking from one room to the other all you get is more steps before reaching the gift shop.
