  • This is probably aimed more at children but we four adults enjoyed ourselves there - there are riddles to solve, dressing up clothes, activities like firing a crossbow, and a film (not great quality.....  more »
  • We went to this museum having been told by a tourist information person that it was a horse museum (and it hence appealed to my horse-mad daughter) - only to realise when we got in that it was about.....  more »

  • Great attraction for adults and kids alike. Really informative and the owner takes great delight in sharing his passion with visitors. Real good value for money, especially compared with other tourist traps which are way pricier. Would definitely recommend! Great fun (don't forget to do the smell test!). Our 2 kids (7 and 4 yo) both loved it and so did we!
  • SUMMARY: - NOT A MUSEUM OR ANYTHING ALIKE. - ENTRY: 6 € (5€ students). - IN MY OPINION: Just another tourist trap. Better ways to invest the money in the city... PROS: - Correct staff. - You can have fun taking pictures and shooting a toy crossbow. CONS (JUST TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT): 1) Three rooms of a two level flat with tacky replicas of 4 medieval weapons, a chair and an armour (easily encountered in a flea market...), and a box with 2 robes, a pair of gloves, a sword and one helmet for taking pictures. 2) Scarce and wrong translated cards with simple information. 3) Inner courtyard for shooting with a toy crossbow (probably the only thing you can enjoy there). CONCLUSION: - Really disappointing: Looks like the owner bought a box of medieval stuff in a market and decorated the flat... (No references to the huge history of Carcassone).
