    The sense of hagiography surrounding the whole Bonaparte family, but especially Napoléon, was very strong in this museum.
    My favourite part of this experience was seeing the careful restoration of wallpaper and wall painting (and ceiling painting). Wow – the detail was amazing.
    Captions are all written in French, so could be difficult for non-French speakers to get the most out of it.
    The lady in the souvenir shop at the end of the tour is a bit grumpy! I was not allowed to take my backpack inside and had to cloak it next door for 2 euros.

    There are two distinctive parts of visiting this museum: indoor and outdoor.
    Inside the museum you get familiarised with the rural Corsican life, before the touristic boom. There is also a video that stimulate visitors imagination about the strange animal shape rocks in the area. Then you go out and see the real animal shape rocks, and an old shepherd shelter with shepherd's tools and artifacts. You also have the chance to walk under the maquis shrubs and enjoy their scent. The views over the Roccapina bay are amazing.

    Once in Bastia ,to discover this "miniature village" is very interesting, but also to spend a couple of minutes to discuss with the man there who built himself all this impresive village.

    We arrived on 11.50 in Aleria, but were not allowed in the museum before 13.00 h. because of the siesta. A lot of other visitors left, there were nearly no restaurants open at that time (because it was sunday). The mueum is interesting with a largo collection of articles found in the environment. Most interesting however was the site, where the Romans housed more than 2000 years ago. The place is well known from the Asterix book Asterix on Corsica.

    Some interesting exhibitions about local Corsican history and traditions surrounded by nice plantations with some impressive cacti. An interesting art exhibition when we visited too, as well as a mosaic workshop for the children. Well worth a visit.

    I visited this Museum over lunchtime as part of a planned itinerary of Ajaccio. When I arrived there was some sort of regional meeting taking place in the first room!
    The participants came to greet me and one man showed me round several parts of the museum and even brought me a glass of champagne that the locals were sharing.
    There was a lot of information hand written in French and it is a little "too much" to take it all in.
    There are some interesting items like an old war radio and the coat of arms showing the allegaince between the Corsicans and the British.
    I dont think that this museum has fulfilled it's potential and i was advised that there are many more items but they do not have the space or budget to be exhibited.
    Despite this I would still pop in here if i had a spare hour as it is an interesting collection and gives you a true feel for Corsica.

    Could our earlier contributors have made an unfortunate error. If you follow the signs to the museum and pull up in the car park your eye is drawn to a recently restored (palacio) three story stone building awaiting your attention all closed up. But this is not the museum! The museum is down some steps below the carpark, deliberately designed to be unassuming and to blend into the landscape, this dreary concrete construction achieves its' aim by being unnoticeable. But here it is!
    Try to visit this museum AFTER a visit to the site at Cucuruzzu and it all falls into place. Well worth a detour.
