This is by no means a conventional museum!! As you walk through the house you get a rather disjointed commentary which is triggered by sensors in each room. By the time I left, I didn't know a lot more about Satie, but had a real sense of his eccentricities.
Each themed room has a modern display which in turn intrigue, amuse and bewilder!! I'm quite sure I didn't understand much of it, but I was entertained for a couple of hours and I left with a smile on my face and one of Saties tunes in my head, which even weeks later occasionally pop into my head.
The piano room was very peaceful - all white with a white piano playing Saties compositions. The kids loved the strange "cycling" machine which had 3 or 4 seats which cycled round in a circle and powered some other clockwork gadgets. It was like something out of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang".
There was also a film at the end which was well worth seeing.
