  • Of course we're approaching the surreal universe and his taste for provocation. The space is occupied in an original way, but if unknown Satie we know little more out. We're having a time but it lacks a real pedagogical desire.

  • Surprises in smiles and laughs, a time to recommend for going out in a good mood for the day.

  • Erik Satie was an odd but talented composer and artist. The museum displays his talents and they reveal his playful nature. His dynamic sculptures are simply fun!

  • 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.
