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

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.
