The museum cost is part of the castle ticket. The museum closes for lunch between 12:00-13:00 and is closed on Mondays. Interesting.

We didn’t realise the museum was closed on a Monday. Such a shame as we were looking forward to our visit following a recommendation. Next time...

Please try to visit the museum before attempting the climb. I speak French fluently, which was most helpful as, the video shown in the museum is in French. There is a nice collection of artefacts, which should appeal to everybody.

We visited the museum after or walk up to the chateau. I was very impressed with the models, video displays, and artefacts contained within, and it made our trip better overall, being able to relate to the history. As mentioned already, entry to the museum...More

After a walk up to the castle, and a lovely lunch in the village, a wander round this museum was very interesting. The thought of what actually happened at this site is hard to imagine, although unfortunately quite true.

We visited the museum after the castle and, although small, it has some very interesting artefacts - it makes the tragedy of the Cathars much more poignant.

There was only a very tiny display in cases of some finds in the museum. It wasn't worth the entrance fee, unless you are really very bored or very enthusiastic about history.
