Honfleur Things to Do: 43 reviews and 70 photos

Opened in 1998, this high-tech museum honors Honfleur's native son Erik Satie, in the house where he was born in 1866. Satie was a "complete artist" -- he became most famous for his music, but he was also a painter, and acted as a muse and inspiration to Picasso, Braque, Cocteau, Débussy, Ravel, and Stravinsky. This is not a traditional museum. The walk-through exhibitions incorporate sound, light, and recordings of Satie's compositions. Visitors wear high-tech helmets that transmit sound, which allows for a degree of play and experimentation in some of the exhibits.

Admission 5.10? adults, 3.60? ages 10-17, free for children under 10.
