  • Floor after floor, the rooms of the House are built around a circular central skylight. A corridor turn around and gives access to the pieces, each with a bit of history. Interestingly, the welcome is friendly.

  • The architecture of this place is worth a visit. We loved the originality of the central skylight. Discoveries in each room.

  • 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.
  • A surprising visit, the pieces are finally small enough and seem rather dull, not making the pomp and opulence that one would expect of a rich ship owner of le havre. However, visit booklet is very comprehensive and includes all the objects you come across on his way, found without difficulty. Note a slight this unpleasant smell throughout the House, perhaps due to the humidity in the month of January.

  • An extraordinary welcome... Little book tour very well made, accurate, easy to read, nothing is forgotten! ... A part of "Our history", but it was also another century! ... I'll go back, sure that I will find some "moments" of that time, that have missed me 1st meeting...
