I probably should not have read the reviews beforehand as they contain spoilers! This place is really fun, very fitting given the subject matter (clearly Eric Satie was crazy!) and I enjoyed the audio guide a lot. Someone has gone to a lot of trouble to put this museum together. A lovely hour or so spent away from the summer... More

What a delightful museum this turned out to be! You get n audio headset that is controlled by infra-red, so that you can go to different parts of each exhibit and hear different things. Even if you don't recognize the composers name, you will be enthralled and delighted by this little gem, I know I was!!

Very interesting and a little weird, but I'm glad we went. Fans of Eric Satie will enjoy it. I didn't realize he was so bizarre. The Museum has some interactive parts that were fun.

As a frequent visitor to beautiful Honfleur we decided it was time we visited the Satie House. Well, what can you say? It wasn't that I didn't enjoy the experience and you have commend the bravery of this amusing and quirky presentation. However, I'm not sure I am any the wiser about the life and times of Monsieur Satie. The... More

We knew it was quirky from the reviews but it went beyond that. It might have helped if we understood more French but perhaps not. If you are an ardent fan and totally get what he was about then it might be relevant. For us who only know his music it was mind boggling but not in a good way!

I'm a Satie fan and was very much looking forward to visiting this museum, but it was a bit of a letdown. It's very quirky with a bunch of somewhat interactive displays that seem to work sometimes and other times not so much. The tour through the house ends up with a short film that's not really all that interesting.... More

Amazing little museum of the pianist Eric Satie. Lots of unusual surreal surprises. Take your time to immerse yourself in each room

Genius I think. He may have had some odd ideas, but reminds me of the Monty Python crew but of an earlier age. The rooms in the house are weird, but fascinating, and "machines" are crazy, and even the film show is rather odd. The whole visit was accompanied by his music "Gymnopaedie" (spelling?) which is without doubt, one of... More

We loved this little museum. We had never learn of Erik Satie but we were pleasantly surprised by this quaint little house and his quirky sense of humour. We really enjoyed the music too - so much that we bought a set of CDs to take home with us. We are glad that we visited. Highly recommend a visit when... More

So pleased we were able to explore a bit more of honfleur and find this wonderful tribute to Satie! Super exhibition, very quirky, not at all what I expected, such fun and to hear his music as you go round is just lovely.audioguide helpful but needs a little concentration. It's a bit off the usual tourist route (the harbour, church... More
