Art Museum Castle
Chateau-Musee survived the 1694 bombardment and is now a museum and exhibition space with a strong maritime collection. From here, you can get a panoramic view over the town and the coast. The castle is composed of a quadrangular enclosure with round flanking towers and a lower court adjacent. Its interior courtyard is picturesque. Inside, admire a rich collection of 17th- and 18th-century ivory carvings, including the lacy folding fans for which Dieppe was known. The castle was founded in 1188 and destroyed in 1195. Restored in the 14th century, the castle was later in large part reconstructed by Charles des Marets.

  • Very interesting Museum despite a somewhat inadequate signage. The sculptures on ivory, historically local specialties, are particularly to be discovered. Also presents a beautiful collection of marine paintings.

  • Great castle with lots of information on the history of the city. A nice place to visit and walk around. Great view of the city and beach form the top. Be sure to check the panoramic view on the lawn!
