This very fine museum offers displays of artefacts, furniture and settings of shops and trades of the XIXth or eraly XXth century. It's a real opportunity of discovery for children and of nostalgia for grown ups.

Very very enjoyable museum. The displays are brilliantly put together, the only downside is you want to touch everything, and wander through the mock shops. I want them to still be open!! Not too large so our small children enjoyed it too and it didn’t wear them out. A great step back into history, well worth a visit. We went in the morning and had plenty of time to wander around and then grab lunch afterwards.

Visited a Sunday in August when it was very quiet as everyone else at the beach. About 6€ entry and 2€ for an audio guide in English. There is also plenty of info around in English too. Divided into different shops and services such as a surgery and a bar there is loads of interesting memorabilia perfectly displayed. Friendly staff who spoke English and a good souvenir shop. Recommended for couples or families.

Spent a rainy afternoon visiting this museum of old commercial shops and establishments from the early 1900s France.. Everything is set out well and information is in English as well as French. The detail in each of the displays is exceptional and suitable for all ages. I recommend this museum to all.
