Those looking for a documentary-style, information-based exhibit about this eccentric composer will indeed be disappointed (or baffled) but the spirit of this place captures his essence and the spirit of the age in a wonderfully unique way. I am sure many of Satie's contemporaries found...More

Very artistic and very funny. Perhaps not for the serious person who wants to know all about his repertoire. We smiled all the way. Children will love it too.

This is not a "normal" museum! Although "classical" music can seem quieting Satie and his compositions are varied and expressions of pushing boundaries. Walk through his house to visualize creativity in a time long before our own.

Unfortunately, this museum was closed due to a "technical fault", for the entire 5days of our stay in Honfleur. Very frustrating!

The house and museum were small and easy to navigate. Satie's story was told with humour using multi-media. Very well put together. A nice way to spend an hour or so.

If you want what our children used to call "glass case museums" then this one isn't for you. We were one of the last to enter and it is open until relatively late in the day. It is situated down a street full of old...More

If you are looking for a museum in the traditional sense, this is definitely not it. With the responsive headset you become part of a bit of a stage production which serves to illuminate the life and philosophy of Eric Satie. You can walk through...More
