We looked forward to experiencing the story of Joan of Arc though the miniature model of the castle at Rouen and the towers where she had been held captive, and the life sized wax figures arranged in scenes from her life. But the owner apparently retired and took the museum with him so it no longer exists. Disappointing.

Will be going to Rouen in December (2013). Would love to visit the museum but from all I've read, it closed in October 2012! ???

Clearly an iconic spot in the troubled relations between France and England in medieval times. Brings the stories to life

Currently in Rouen and went to the museum to find it closed 'due to fire damage', with a 'For Sale (à vendre)' sign on the doors.

It's a small museum that looks a little dodgy from the outside. We were concerned that it was more off a tourist trap than authentic musee, but once we went it, it was worth the money. It has displays of memorabilia, models of towns and wax exhibits with audio ccommentary. But the end of your visit (less than one hour)... More

Small out gift shop at the entrance opens out back downstairs to longer rooms, hallways and cellar which contains some intriguing historic pieces. There is a wax exhibit representing stages of her life, commentary is in 4 languages. The exhibit shows scenes from her birth to being burned at the stake. Worth a visit if you don't know anything about... More

Rouen does not seem to know how to honor Joan. The spot of her martyrdom is marked by a big aluminum cross with no plaque. A few yards away is this tacky little museum which at least doesn't cost much, There are a bunch of tableaux of Joan's life with cheesy wax figures. You push a button to hear her... More

We had to ask to have the lights turned on. Much of the audio did not work. The memorabilia was interesting. Did not know so many movies have been made about Jeanne d'Arc.

What a shame as such an interesting topic so poorly represented. Wax dummies in strange positions whilst a voice over tells the storey. It's pretty bad.
