The musees (of which there are two museums in this group) come under one heading. The 2 museums are: (1) Musee de la Marine (2) Musee d'Ethnographie The title for this review (Musee du Vieux Honfleur) is really the ethnographic museum (number 2) above).

This is a small museum but rich in history. It makes you think very hard about the people who live in the town, how poor most people were and how challenging life must have been in previous centuries. Great collection of artifacts - the museum...More

This is the same as "Musee D'ethnographie Et D'art Populaire Normand". Two names for the same museum. 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...More

This museum is not open all day but it’s worth returning if it’s closed. It’s full of history and the rooms are a reflection of times gone by. Takes a good half an hour at least to go around. Photographers - great pictures of medieval...More

Really old church, take a look at the ceiling as well. Al navy things are nice too. Cheap entrance, ideal for when a small shower passes by

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
