Even if you've never heard of Erik Satie, you'll have definitely have heard his music (in particular his 3 Gymnopedie piano compositions), and this gem of a tiny museum captures his life and music through installations, sound, light, music and truly surreal museum pieces. The...More

I don't want to ruin the experience. Just go and open your mind. You won't forget it. You enter a different world.

The headphones were a disaster ... not enough written information ... the white piano room was amazing and we enjoyed the final short film. But overall it could and should have been so much better, far too 'quirky' to be of great interest I fear.

I love Satie's music so was looking forward to this. I certainly admired the ambition to mirror the personality of Erik Satie. The technology with the audio switching on and off as you entered different rooms was impressive. But apart from the room with the...More

Very quirky museum. In fact I think having been round the museum I was left feeling that Satie was a pretty quirky person. Enjoyable though. There were lots of children there but I’m not sure what they would have got out of it.

The house was a bit of a revelation about the life of Erik Satie, but I felt only focused on certain elements of his life. It is quite good but the machines to hear the tour are a bit quirky themselves and do not always...More

Satie's works in all his art forms are quirky which contributes a lot to his appeal. I felt the curators perhaps tried a bit too hard to put this in block letters, in bold and underline things. The layout and a lot of the content...More

I must admit that I did not have a broad knowledge of Satie's music and assumed that the museum would expand my knowledge and understanding of the artist. Whilst the museum was quirky, fun and amusing, it was also not that informative. The GPS earphones...More
