  • A truly recommendable Museum for adults and children, rather inconspicuous from the outside, from the inside surprisingly top! A cheaper ticket price, a very friendly welcome, interesting, entertaining guided tours (20-30 minutes) in French or English, surprising insights and views on each floor... I can only recommend! An absolute highlight!

  • Beautiful tour of the Martello Tower. The guide was ready tell us the whole story of the tower. We were impressed of the ingenuity of the builders of the time. Bravo has Friends of the Environment to restore Martello Tower. Thank you.
