Chateau-Musee, Dieppe
(3.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The castle of Dieppe pride is perched above the town on the coast of the English channel. The castle was built between the 12th and 15th century and partially rebuilt. The castle looks very nice from the outside. However, it is built around so much that having barely an idea, and once inside, it looked inside through the art museum. Paintings of famous painters and fine arts are exhibited in the Museum. The castle entrance per person costs 4.50 euros. Also, not all parts of the Castle are still accessible. The Castle offers very nice photo opportunities.

  • We enjoyed the visit to the Museum which is very rich in its composition, both in carving ivory on wood and other materials. We enjoyed the paintings. Supervisors are nice and easily give us information or anecdotes.

  • A nice Chateau. Free for a basic look around, €4 to visit the museum/art gallery
  • Belle exposition et très belle vue
  • Great Museum with interesting permanent collections, including the beautiful ivories. Special mention to staff, including the two hostesses at the reception, charming and highly tuned. The Castle, alone, is worth with panoramic view on Dieppe. Want to go back to the Museum, magical place.

  • Nice little castle, both inside and outside. The big interest was the magnificent view of the sea front of Dieppe.

  • The castle is an art galleries and a museum. For those who wanted to see the inside of a castle, spend not to visit. The panorama of the city is splendid and don't cost nothing
