3.8/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • lovely outside Castle. But inside, nothing don't put in value. The Interior contains an exhibition which misrepresents him and for lovers of old stones, that is set to pay an entry. The view outside is enough

  • 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
