Chateau-Musee, Dieppe

(3.8/5 based on 340+ 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 looks huge but only a small part this visit, what a pity! Nothing on the history of the castle itself. With respect to the expo, ivories and paintings present are well set values and very beautiful. This is the first time that the we are asked to leave the stroller at the entrance, especially as the crowd was very low and the access and market inside were not too complicated. That we stop to enjoy the visit.

  • 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
