“Great if you speak French”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Or understand French but if you don't then this is not for you. The man luring you in is very good in making you part with €18 per adult! If you like French history about boats then you will love this place!! It would help if they offered a translation service in the way of a radio earpiece for the videos but they don't! We were in and out in 5mins if that!

“better things to see”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

save your time for other things. This was the only museum open during our stay, and our daughters were keen to see a museum on the Mont. Sadly it really wasn't worth the time or money. There was no English translation, so we watched a couple of dvds and looked at some model boats. Really can't recommend it.

“Pointless”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

No translation into English, lots of model boats in 4 rooms so nothing special. Save your money for the Abbey. This museum is offered as a package (4 museums for €18, each museum is supposedly €9 each). DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE!

“A tourist trap”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Classical, unabashed... great way to spend your mony and get disappointment in exchange. This is a part of three or so "museums", and, in my opinion, the worst part.

“Really REALLY bad”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

We were talking into coming in by a slightly pushy gentleman at the front entrance. I wish I'd read the trip advisor reviews because they are all a fairly accurate portrayal; a few off floors of model boats and a small room with a shirt film about the hydraulics and engineering etc of Mont St-Michel. Very interesting I'm sure, except everything was in French with no translation available. Odd in such a huge tourist attraction. The man who sold us the tickets said we would have the best views from the top and we should definitely pay to come in. Turns out the 'view from the top' was the gift shop which opens onto the ramparts which are free for everyone to walk around anyway. Annoyed we were conned out of 18 euros to be honest, don't get conned into wasting your money like we did!
