  • Decent museum. We were given an English guide to read on most of the artifacts. They are not in the order they are presented in the rooms so it can be hard to find them in the book. Truthfully, they’re not that interesting anyway. I don’t believe any of them are original. The only reason I’d go to the museum is to see the architecture. It’s a very unique polygonal design with a large central open air skylight flooding all of the floors in light from within. The room layouts on the floors make it easy to understand that the family that built this house was wealthy and influential in Le Havre. If you’re interested in architecture, I’d recommend this museum. Otherwise it may be slightly frustrating to gain any insight into daily life of the inhabitants and the artifacts aren’t overly interesting.
  • I didn't expect so much here, but I found amazingly well preserved rooms with fancy decorations and paintings from 18th and 19th centuries. This is one of those local museums in France where we are reminded that France has kept rich cultural heritage even after the devastation of the war here.
  • Beautiful inside. You gotta see the "indoor lighthouse" if you love architecture. Great maps of old Le Havre. Not as blocked off as other museums.
  • One of the few houses of le Havre from before 1944 still standing. An opportunity to talk about the haven of before (that of the wealthy of course) to be completed with the Perret show flat visit, to see what life was like for the less fortunate hollow. A good time

  • Very nice place with an original architecture. A staple of le Havre in view of its history
