I'd read mentions of Nostradamus, but seeing this museum opened my mind to read much more about his work, era, and prophecies. The museum is housed in the building where he and his family lived for (as I recall about ) 20 years, and it's...More

The few wax figurines depicting scenes in Nostradamus’ life are dull, lifeless and offer nothing to the viewer. We were given a piece of paper with a few facts in English to read as we walked around. The information provided was vague and we walked...More

Its about ten rooms with mannequins supposedly representing Nostradamus' life symbolically. Without any relevant information on the man or the period. Very superficial.

When visiting the house of Nostradamus I'd expect to see how he lived, his stuff, his furniture, his legacy. Unfortunately what I got was a puppet show of stories that took way too much time and were told based on partially unfounded assumptions. In every...More

They just used Nostradamus house to build his biography (one chapter per room) but the execution is really poor and you will not learn or see anything new. Don't waste your time and money here.
