  • The scenography of the Museum takes us into a friendly and poetic world that appeals to children as to the oldest (that we know works of Brassens or not). A few tips:-come well before 5 pm for hospitality we'll understand the screening of the concert will be stopped at 17.40. -Pair the visit with the grave of Brassens (the cemetery is across the road). -Feel free to remove the audio guide if you want to read the panels quietly (the sound runs in a loop in each room so you can re - listen to the testimony). -At the end of the visit, in the boutique you can listen to several CD. Try to find "Brassens, echoes of the world", it's nice to listen to some extracts at the conclusion of the visit to be aware of the influence of the artist.

  • Friendly visit around the life and the course of Brassens with an audioguide ou Brassens itself gives some anecdote about his life. Interesting

  • It is a place not to be missed if you like Mr Brassens. He looks particularly good. Opposite you can see also the place or rest it in all modesty

  • Museum modern, helmet ears, videos, pictures, curly, toilets in free access, small shop at the entrance, air conditioning. For those who know the singer it is a nostalgic paradise. For those who do not know they learn about it through the songs that each room crossed (synchronization mechanism). Very beautiful moment. Visit which may be more or less 1 hour.

  • Super. The audio guide we distilled the songs throughout the visit. Very nice pictures. We are plunged into the world of the singer poet. Definitely worth the money.

  • Extra. And besides it's Georges Brassens who comments. A must see, at least for fans of French songs.

  • The Museum takes us of his childhood to an end. Tell us the things Georges brassens dared not tell us. I highly recommend this Museum for the fan of the artist.

  • Secondary Museum but a very belle.mise in scene and a nice scenography. Little importance on the visit of Sète if we have a day. Few buses and very long walk
