Musee du Vieux Honfleur, Honfleur

(3.6/5 based on 80+ 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.
