I can’t say it was not nice, it was a great setup… as if you walk into a merchant market and see how it was back in medieval time but honestly, not much to see, just feel it, look at it and leave in 10 min. Stop by if you are just passing by but don’t worry if you have no time to visit it. You won’t miss much.
Nice tour to listen and learn about the peak of Provins and merchants. You are provided with a headset and listen to the story of each exhibit. It's well maintained, clean and you'll learn something here. Might not be too much fun for the kids though.
One of the best places I visited while in France. The free audio guide is really good and the museum is not too long, so you don't get tired.
Authentic medieval village. Well kept and in great state. Not visiting ruins but an actual live village with inhabitants and school. Managed to keep a great balance between the history and daily life.
I'm sure this is interesting to see in the summer time but dont bother going in the winter. The tourist locations in the old city are only open from 2pm to 5pm. Makes me wonder why they even bother.
