Just missed it

We got there just before they close for lunch. Never the less, the streets and houses along the way are interesting and nice.

This many-roomed museum features rooms set out in historical detail with many fascinating exhibits. You can get a two-museum ticket (e.g. for this and the Musée de la Marine) - a great deal!

We stil had at least a hour to vist the museum but the "concierge" was not really happy to see us. So we ran away. Sad and I 'm mostly a very extrovert person.

This museum is housed in a medieval building which is interesting in itself. The collection is eclectic but interesting.

Small little museum that takes about 20 minutes to walk through. My wife enjoyed more than me. With the Honfleur Museum Pass it is effectively free if you see the Boudin and Satie exhibits.
