The museum, an ex-church, (and the old prison next door) have existed for, well, since 1369 with various uses since that time. You can buy a ticket for the prison for an additional E1.20 if you buy the museum entry. (Prices vary by age and...More

Have to agree with another writer in that the staff weren't friendly...think they were in character with the rest of the museum but not in costume. Each room is a scene from a variety of other houses that would have been in the old Honfleur,...More

It boggles the mind how old this building is....go to learn about the history of Honfleur and how the timbered buildings lasted so long.

Just off the Vieux Bassin and a truly superb little museum of old Honfleur. The view from the entrance over to the harbour is truly picturesque and a cracking place for photos.

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

You will need a tour guide to help explain the importance of the area. I am not sure I would have known to go down this side street if we had not had one. The area is old, rich with history and very charming. Enjoy...More

We got there just before they close for lunch. Never the less, the streets and houses along the way are interesting and nice.

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!
