Very dissapointed experience. I had an other view of a crypt. This is a museum and not a crypt. Too much money to see what it was.

The crypt was closed on Mondays so we dashed in on Tuesday morning before our departure and we're really glad we did. It well worth the entrance money in explanations alone! Truly staggering wall paintings, albeit some are clearly replicas, and impressive artefacts. We did...More

This really is well worth doing. The Notre-Dame is very much a working church but underground is a spacious exhibition area with exhibits that cover the original Roman Road, stone work, wooden carvings and gold/silver church artefacts. Kids loved it and some very good pieces....More

Underground museum with maze type corridors. Very interesting and beautiful. Pieces are tipically historical or religious. Entry only 5€ and children free. Really good.

I spent a good two hours looking around this fascinating maze of ancient corridors and rooms, filled with superb frescoes and fabulous works of art, and could have stayed longer. A very atmospheric and thought provoking place to visit, that shouldn't be missed.

Been in Boulogne-sur-Mer before but didn’t discover this gem then. Amazing how the frescos, ceiling/wall paintings were restored in their greatness.
