Visit only worth it if you combine it with the other museums
Oct 2019
We spent a day in Honfleur recently and started with this museum on a Monday. When I asked the lady if I could buy a multi museum ticket, she said yes I could buy either a two museum ticket or a four museum ticket (the others being the Ethnographic, Satie and Boudin museums). She then told me that the Satie and Boudin museums were closed which I knew not to be the case.

We bought a ticket for the first two, neighbouring museums and started with the Ethnography one next door. When we returned she very apologetically admitted that the other two museums were indeed open!

The Marine museum is located in the oldest church in town - it had be desonsecrated. As such it was very small and only really of interest to people with maritime leanings. On its own it is also quite expensive and not worth it. Only go there if you are planning to visit the other ones as well.

Small museum
Aug 2019
We believe the price is high for such a small museum with almost no real story. Bu when you combine with Musee Etnographie great.

Only if you buy the combined ticket
Sep 2019
Interesting, but small and only worth it if you by the combined museum ticket (recommend) so you can see all the city museums for one price.

Museum worth a visit with the Manoir d'Ethnographie
Aug 2019
It doesn't take long to go around this museum and take in its artefacts. If you like things antique, it's a neat, inexpensive and brief (20 minutes say) museum. They do a deal on price with Manoir d'Ethnographie which is also worth a visit and is just around the corner.

Worth searching for
Jul 2019
This museum covers a remarkable span of history. It reveals the very important role played by King Henry VI in its development, and how it came to be associated with the
creation of French-speaking Canada. The models of ships are of varying quality.

WORTH A JOINT VISIT WITH MUSEUM NEXT DOOR
Jul 2019 • Couples
Not a lot in here,but what their is, is quite interesting as is the building itself.A joint ticket with the museum next door is less than 5 pounds, so both worth seeing, allow approx 45 minutes for visits to both.

Nice porch to sit in
May 2019 • Friends
Sat in the porch and admired the graffiti scratched into the sandstone, but it was too nice a day and I felt too mean to splash out the €4.20 or whatever on the entrance fee, so I spent it on a beer instead.

Great Location, Poor Interior
Nov 2018 • Solo
Musee of 19 ieme siècle vessel models primarily. Wonderful old church with not much of value to view inside other than a decommissioned church.. In a historical maritime location such as this I expected very much more. Plan on about a ten minute visit.

Worth Seeing together with the Mussee de Vieux Honfleur
Sep 2018 • Couples
After going on a guided Walking Tour of Honfleur this morning my wife and myself retraced our steps this afternoon to visit both the Musee de Vieux Honfleur (see separate Review) and the Musee due last Marine - which are conveniently less than 50 yards apart.

Both Museums are not large - and take less than 30 minutes to visit - but there are some very interesting artefacts on show. Indeed - between them - they help to put Honfleur’s history into perspective.

Tiny maritime museum
Jun 2018 • Friends
Interesting but sadly mostly information is in French. I was able to understand some of the descriptions of items due to school French lessons. Would be useful to have other languages as it is an interesting little museum.
