“Great view, imposing fortress, average museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

The castle itself is really imposing, perched on a cliff overlooking the city of Dieppe. You can walk into the castle and its ground for free, admire the walls and structure and of course the beautiful view of Dieppe.

The museum is pretty stuffy with ivory carving and a few painting thrown in as afterthought.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

An eclectic collection with an emphasis on the carved ivory which was a local speciality 19th/early 20th C. Not exactly must see, but we spent a couple of pleasant hours here

“Ivory”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Reputedly the finest collection of ivory carving anywhere, plus a mixed bag of paintings etc., and a curious reconstruction of the studio of the composer Camille Saint-Saëns. Worth a visit.

“Lovely views from a huge Chateau”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

Unfortunate to find Chateau closed, however a lovely walk around the exterior was well worth the walk up and to see the views from the top of the cliff

Make sure you know the opening hours for this museum as they vary. The museum contains many fascinating artifacts relating to the town and the region.
