A rather wacky museum as others have said, however we enjoyed it as a reflection of the personality of Satie. The music pieces are quite beautiful and his writings fascinating. There is a sense of crazy fun in some of the exhibits which is refreshing, if hard to relate to the subject. Don't bother with the cine video at the... More

Near to the overcrowded old harbour, this provided welcome respite. With background music by this great composer, yo you can enjoy a series of weird and amusing exhibits in this typical old town house.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this museum and pleased to learn more about Eric Satie. I found the headphones comfortable to wear, but felt that a repeat button would have been helpful as I felt I missed some commentary. The whole house was a joy to visit and the piano in the attic playing some of my favourite pieces... More

Should you not be familiar with Satie, you should go there. A very innovative and different way of letting you familiarize with his personality and his works. And if you know Satie, you will find the place very amusant. You will spend here one hour of relaxed fun in an interactive setting

We had been advised to visit Satie Museum and we went being a little cautious as we are not into composers/Arts really. Well it was a lovely visit €6.20 if we had gone to the tourist information we could have brought 4 tickets for all the museums for 12€. We had individual headphone sets to hear the life of Satie,...

Worth a visit if you're in Honfleur. I particularly loved the white room. Children went free - but the you younger ones didn't 'get' it at all.

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.
