  • Very good idea to have récréé scenes of time allows to imagine what was at that time provins and discover forgotten jobs. In addition, thanks to the audio guides ready for free, visit becomes more lively and interactive.

  • The scenography and the audio guide, are dun good level, the building is beautiful. On the other hand, it is difficult to achieve the exact use, at the time, by the proposed reconstruction.

  • It is very interesting, because they very well recreate what must have been living in the fairs of Provins. An audioguide you spend in your language allowing you to understand everything better. The young of the reception was very friendly and sympathetic with me. I highly recommend it.

  • Nice tour to listen and learn about the peak of Provins and merchants. You are provided with a headset and listen to the story of each exhibit. It's well maintained, clean and you'll learn something here. Might not be too much fun for the kids though.
  • I'm sure this is interesting to see in the summer time but dont bother going in the winter. The tourist locations in the old city are only open from 2pm to 5pm. Makes me wonder why they even bother.
  • Authentic medieval village. Well kept and in great state. Not visiting ruins but an actual live village with inhabitants and school. Managed to keep a great balance between the history and daily life.
  • Take your time to listen to the audioguided tour with your headset. Interesting. About medieval economics. :)
  • One of the most impressive stunning medieval building I have ever been.
