So interesting and surprising... Our kids (6 and 8 years old) loved it! Perfect thing to do when the weather isn't ideal for outdoor fun. We'll be back

All my kids are elementary school age, and museums such as Musee Archeologique are perfect for us. This museum shows a rich archeologic history of the region from pre-historic times. It is small enough and offers great and diverse exhibits to keep kids focused on...More

This is a free, small well maintained local history museum, with ancient artefacts, old church and viewing tower. I am a pensioner, and enjoyed the challenge and climbed the 128 steps to the top of the church tower

Can't believe you could see it all for free. Well worth the visit . You get to go up the church tower and visit the archeological dig.

Great little museum with free entry. Very interesting to read about the history of the surrounding coastline, if you can read French. Would be good to have it in English as well.
