Satie's works in all his art forms are quirky which contributes a lot to his appeal. I felt the curators perhaps tried a bit too hard to put this in block letters, in bold and underline things. The layout and a lot of the content...More

I must admit that I did not have a broad knowledge of Satie's music and assumed that the museum would expand my knowledge and understanding of the artist. Whilst the museum was quirky, fun and amusing, it was also not that informative. The GPS earphones...More

Even if you have never heard of Eric Satie or his music this museum will enchant you with the clever interpretations of the composer and the sounds of his music. You can't help smiling as you go round. In old buildings that have been brilliantly...More

I was passing by and my 7 year old son urgently needed to use the toilet. The lady at the reception gladly let us use the toilet. Thank you!

We did not know this museum existed until we read about it in the guidebook when we arrived to the city this morning. We decided we should go since we like his music. The unusual use of the audio guide as you move from relatively...More

We usually like quirky museums but this was a step too far. Totally surreal. No idea what most of it was about at all. Reckon the designers were high on something. Go and have a coffee or ice cream and people watch at the Honfleur...More

We didn't really do a great deal of research before our visit - we knew a little bit about his music, but very little about him or his personal life. The exhibition was more of an art experience - quite fascinating and intriguing, with interactive...More
