  • Very interesting site from the point of view of proposal, architecture, history. Unfortunately we haven't had much luck on the day because our audios not work along with the projection and to complain we had to wait to finish a whole new start to visit ... we didn't have more time and we don't finish. Of any kind, is something that looks interesting.

  • Excellent! I really recommend, because I had a lovely time in this great interactive museum. You are immersed in the heart of the trial of Joan of arc with a succession of very interesting videos.

  • I have not seen a multimedia museum experience as engaging and interesting as this one. In a beautiful setting, they take you through a very human-focused look at Jeanne d'Arc - her life, actions, impacts and trials. Great for an introduction or a revisit to the topic. Many stairs, but an elevator is available. You go through the tour/presentation with a small group so it does not feel crowded. The English translation headset is very well done and on the whole it seems very seamless. At the end of the experience, there are some extra rooms well worth spending time in. It is particularly lovely to hear from some academic experts in a personable way!
  • Excellent modern museum telling the story of Joan of Arc and the way it has impacted the history of France. You will be taken through a series of rooms making use of 3D projection technology to put you at the centre of the story. Headsets offering voice-overs in English and many other languages are available free. Storage lockers are available with a €1 deposit. You can purchase a combo ticket for the Historial Jeanne d'Arc and the Panorama XXL for €15 - well worth it!
  • If you understand French well, definitely take the tour. It is very well made and not available in any other language.
  • If you ever wanted to know about Joan of Arc, then visit here. Relatively new attraction housed in the archbishop's palace behind the Cathedral. You travel through the rooms to see the story of Joan's life told by way of reconstruction of her trial and retrial. Very interesting and relevant to current times using 3D and holograms to bring the story to life. Visitors are drip fed in so that everyone gets a good view. Headsets in other languages are available.
  • Very nice museum of Jeanne d'Arc. Must visit.

Where to stay in Rouen

If your main reason for visiting Rouen is its famous cathedral, which inspired Monet to paint dozens of canvasses, consider booking your room at a hotel in or around the city center. Despite being within walking distance of the cathedral and the river, hotels in this area provide comfort and privacy at modest prices. If you're looking to splurge and location isn't your priority, think about staying at a luxurious hotel-spa situated farther outside the city, where you can have access to heated outdoor pools.
