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.

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 taking a look.

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!

We stil had at least a hour to vist the museum but the "concierge" was not really happy to see us. So we ran away. Sad and I 'm mostly a very extrovert person.

Even if you don't go inside, you can appreciate this museum as a masterpiece of an ancient building, it is like walking through history in the streets of Honfleur - a very special place

This museum is housed in a medieval building which is interesting in itself. The collection is eclectic but interesting.

Sorry Boudin, I'm a fan of studying and learning more about the long history of charming Honfleur. Amazing what changes Honfleur has been through over the ages. Enjoy ....
