Interesting if you are interested in poetry, music and reflections on everyday French life. Better if you understand French language and a bit more... An audio guide in English (and other languages) is provided An excellent concept and presentation of Georges Brassens

Even if you're not a French speaker but perhaps a student of poetry then this museum is well worth a visit. Well laid out and with an English audio guide, you'll discover what helped create this poetic genius.

Interesting and informative about someone loved in France but perhaps not as well known outside the country. You might spend anywhere between a half-hour and two hours there.

Sete is proud of George Brassens-he was born there. And they should be! This interesting style of museum-self guided walk through different areas listening with headphones in different languages. It goes through his life, early career, and explanation in his words of how and why...More
