“Interesting and only a few euros”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We went when the museum was closed and the lovely historian let us in anyway and gave us a half hour talk on Joan. They have thousands of original documents there, even from her trial and I found it very interesting. The house is a recreation and not the one she lived in. If you're not a Joan of Arc fan, it's probably not for you but if you are, it's a must.

“Interesting but more could be made of this”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

From the outside you expect the museum for Joan of Arc to have lots to look at and read about. Essentially you go into the medieval building and are presented with a video to watch (we had headphones for an English translation). This was interesting and we certainly learnt something about the heroine of Orleans. However that was it! The entrance fee did include another museum across the town but we didn't get that far as our young boys had had enough by then.

“This is not a Joan of Arc Museum”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Apparently this building is an archive of medieval texts. They sometimes show a film of Joan of Arc's life, but not on the Saturday that I was there. There's nothing here for the casual tourist except for a look at the exterior and a plaque.
