The Abbey is the most important attraction in Montivilliers and is a decent place to visit. Prices are also fair (5€ for adults), the building is in great shape after extensive repair and the history of the Abbey is interesting enough to deserve a long and rich exhibition. However, the audio guide is poorly engineered and is quite funny to use (funny as in "annoying"). Some parts of the audiovisual display need to be synchronised with the guide, and i never managed to have it right. The exhibition itself is quite poor (no original objects, paintings,...) and only focuses on the history of the Abbey and the Dukes of Normandy. Save it for a rainy day or if you're a history buff.
