Quite amazing how the crypt has been lying undisturbed for so many years but has gradually been excavated over the last few hundred years to provide a great spectacle--a great treasure for Boulogne and for visitors, you must visit.

We went to Boulogne in August, just for the weekend and visited the crypt to get out of the sun as it was nice and cool down there. Glad we did because it was very interesting once we got in. Good entrance price too.

Good and nice that people get to touch the artefacts but the commentary on the device they give you to listen to is thunderingly boring full of architectural detail and little or no human history of the place.

Well worth a visit if you are in Boulogne's fascinating Old Town. Well presented and all exhibits have an English description. You get a (small) discount when you buy a joint ticket for the Musee.
