Visited the Satie house last week and found it fascinating as a small insight into the man. His imagination and character come over strongly and you can lose yourself for a moment listening to his music on the auto-piano and by being a child again...More

I enjoyed this visit so much, knowing little about the composer and his music and his radical, fun-filled perspectives on art. The museum itself is a place of performance - presenting the composer's music wrapped up in his times and in new engaging artwork. The...More

I have visited this attraction twice. It is a house full of surprises and really reflects the way Satie's life was. The piano room is out of this world and the "roundabout" is fun. So worth a visit

The place looked like a normal museum but Erik Satie was far from it. Eccentric it was a look at this odd character's life as you walk thru a type of carnival house with audio guide. The grand finale was a ride on a self...More

the house in itself was actually not all that interesting, but the fact that the guide was very good at explaining all about Erik Satie made it all worthwile, we could actually hear his music playing while listening to the explanation...
