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.

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!

This Museum is interesting both on the inside and the outside . The collection had elements from the Old France and from La Nouvelle France !
