This museum tells the story of the Seine River, it's inhabitants, and the landscapes. It is partly interactive, part displays and a couple of short videos. It is not large but very well done.

Small, but modern museum. Very informative, nice staff. Short movie about the tidal flood of the river Seine. Big wall with description of the river. Would go again if we lived nearby. Beatiful situated by the river. Outdoor playground and mini golf close by.

The Avalon Tapestry docked next to the Museo Seine and we looked into it. However because of the nice weather, we paid little attention to the museum. The garden and pier of the museum were well kept and few local residences were using the place...More

This brand new museum is brilliant, both in its coverage, its use of technology and in its provision for English speakers. No need for an audio-guide here - every label (yes, every label) is bi-lingual and every audio-visual facility has a choice of English or...More
