You will be guided by a voice through 10 different rooms with models that do not illustrate anything. Actually we have not learnt anything new and left even befor it finished - very disappointing and not even suitable for children

It was nice surprise on our visits, in rainy day, first visitors at 9am- Michael Nostradamus and us. You can feel the spirit. The tour is in English but no guide, just reproduction in every room ( 10 of them). Knowledge that this is the place where he died is powerful. €5 is fair price.

This museum was so unexpected. Set in Nostradamus actual home, you enter 10 or so different rooms where each tell a portion of his life, literally, with top quality wax figures and costumes, and audio narration. We all 4 Loved the experience, and put it in our top 10 all-time museums.

We arrived in Salon de Provence specifically to view the Nostradamus Museum. We hoped that it might be a center of learning, covered with personal artifacts, writings and insights. It was somewhat disappointing. A multi story house: the ground floor a gift shop full of touristy trinkets and some books. You pay an entry fee then climb stairs. At each... More

This house is where Nostradamus lived until his death in 1566. The museum does not really inform the visitor much about the man and unless ones knows of him and what he wrote in terms of prophecies is not really very interesting. There are some static displays with waxwork mannequins in room sets and a few other bits and pieces... More

Nostradamus is an erudite person from which we can learn a lot about but this diaporama with its costumed mannequins was looooong and a boring for adults (though i did learn some historic details, but i would rather read a good biography!) and not at all interesting for kids, too static. It is a big house though for the period,... More

I have spent quite a deal of time in the south of France and visited many fascinating sites. Musee Nostrodamus is not one of them. The museum has a boring and dull apearance with little in the way of presentation to excite the visitor. I expected a lot more by way of historical documents and sketches of Nostrodamus but this...
