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.

A wonderful addition to a stunning venue. Clean, cool, tidy and informative with friendly staff. A veritable treasure trove of interesting architecture, items and treasures. Available in multiple languages. We loved it so much, we visit regularly.

Worth the visit but it is a pay site thought it doesn't mention this until you get down there. There is a lift for those with mobility issue. The exhibits are interesting but a bit of a mishmash. Allow about 30 minutes

We arrived half an hour before closing time at the crypte, which had as a consequence that we had to hurry our visit a bit. I would recommend up till one hour to really explore the place in depth. I was very impressed by this...More
