I visited Digne Les Bains only to visit this museum. I have long been a fan of Alexandra David-Neel, a remarkable figure with a fantastic story: unloved child, opera singer, Buddhist adept, adventurer, adoptive mother of a Tibetan lama. Visits to the museum are guided, although the guides leave plenty of time to fully examine the various artifacts from Alexandra's life and items that illustrate Tibetan culture and religion. The final part of the visit is to Alexandra's house, which she bought because she thought the region resembled Tibet. All fascinating. If this lady's story interests you, or are interested in Tibet, this is a highly worthwhile visit. Many of the exhibits are labeled in English, but the museum doesn't receive many English speaking visitors, I think. At least one of the staff members I spoke to seemed to speak pretty good English, although we conversed almost entirely in French. If you don't speak French, email the museum in advance so they can be prepared, so you can get the most out of this highly intriguing place.
