“Not worth it!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

Supposedly, there is a museum. Well only by appointment! Good luck there. The town is very small and nothing stands out. The only thing worth was the drive. The area is known as the Suisse Normandie, so you can imagine what a beautiful sight. Other than that.....I'm sure there are better things and places to see and do, like Honfleur. Or if you are in the cheese mood drive on to Livarot, cute little town and a free visit through the dairy plant that carries the same name.
