A good refuge on a bitterly cold day. Plenty to wander round, though as observed by others, mostly in French of course! The little English guide is useful but general. We enjoyed the exhibits very much. There are stairs everywhere and no flat access, so...More

It's not super exciting but the history of the city is so interesting to me...particularly the fact that it was mostly destroyed during WW2 and rebuilt using much of the original stone. This is the case with the Chateau. Small fee is charged to enter...More

We visited this museum on our final day in Saint Malo, and found there was a great deal to see. The Chateau itself is beautiful, and it houses exhibits through the centuries including art pieces, tapestries, dishes, and information on living in Saint-Malo though the...More

The building and general setting for this museum are FANTASTIC....part of the 17th century military fortifications of the magnificent walled city of St Malo. Yet, in return for a 15 Euro family ticket, all we got was 5 rooms with fairly randomly displayed items related...More

This is a very interesting castle-fort with a museum that has many levels and great views. There are a lot of steps, so be ready for walking up and down many stone steps. If you are up to it, go to the very top where...More

Worth a visit just to see the inside of the Chateau. Some interesting sections on the relationship between France and Canada. Didn't go right to the top of the tower as the steps are very steep and narrow, but the views from the lower gallery...More

This museum provides documents showing the life of the sailors who headed for Terre neuve in search of cod fishing. Many photos of their difficult living, model boats, maps. The views from the top are great, especially of the bay, remparts and beaches.
