12 May 2015. Could have stayed much longer exploring this hill-top town (Yes it is does top a hill, and the drive up is an experience). We could have stayed much longer in the museum and the staff were very helpful.

Cause I am disabled, my entrance and my companions entrance is free, and also the use of the disabled chair. We got also service from the guardians. The theme is "La Flandre et la Mer" till 12/07/2015. (http://museedeflandre.lenord.fr/fr/Accueil.aspx).
