This tip about the many little museums on Le Mont Saint Michel is put under "Off the beaten path" as the actual museum IS Le Mont Saint Michel. For those who want more, there are: The museum of history, where a collection of weapons, sculptures and paintings can be seen in a setting of old prison and dungeons.
The archéoscope where you can follow the historical steps that lead to the present Mont Saint Michel in various maquettes and posters as well as an interesting multimedia show.
The maritime museum that tells about the bay and it's tides. Here one can also find out everything about how the island status of Le Mont Saint Michel, will be returned after completing a huge project.
Tiphaine?s house, is the originally decorated 14th century house of the wife of Bertrand Duguesclin: Tiphaine.
