Musee du Vieux Honfleur, Honfleur
(3.6/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Housed in a former prison and other dockside buildings, Musee du Vieux Honfleur details daily life and industry throughout the region's history. Enter the historic timbered building, situated in a small side alley, and explore its exhibits of everyday objects and recreated rooms representing common family life. Look for the replica of a town store, another vital cog in the social workings of this harbor town. Be sure to make your way to the church next door, which houses the museum's second section, and learn about the shipbuilding and sailing industries in the region.
