  • The combination of visual and musical beauty, along with a sense of play, made this a memorable and joyous visit for us. 
  • The House is warm she recounts several movements including surrealism, minimalism, repetitive music of Satie. A talented artist who lived in this House in Honfleur is original as Museum.

  • A visit to the Satie Museum was a real eye-opener! We love Satie's music but knew little about him. I have bought a book which will tell me more and help me with my French! This visit was one of the most enjoyable during our stay in Honfleur.
  • just love satie.
  • Eric Satie Museum. Many of the symbols was more than original artist.
