The building is great and the goats outside are an added bonus. Inside the friendly receptionist spoke English (although we didn't need that, but it's helpful). The displays are very varied and the view superb.

We enjoyed the views from the castle and there are some fine pictures (Renoir, Pissaro) in the museum.

Not clear what the exhibition is about, just a non appealing entrance and a price. We like museums, but no clue what the subject was. Surrounding castle was magnificent.More

Spent a pleasant morning admiring paintings and various fascinating artifacts... The views were fantastic and interesting to see old equipment in the castle... Don't bother if you don't enjoy art or history. Just climb up the hill and admire the view and all the goats...More

There is a very good collection of paintings, sculptures, carvings, models and other artefacts tracing the history of Dieppe. It is all housed in some interesting buildings with spectacular views. I dont know how they do it for the money.
