Create an itinerary including Musee de Dieppe
Musee de Dieppe survived the 1694 bombardment and is now a museum and exhibition space with a strong maritime collection. From here, you can get a panoramic view over the town and the coast. The castle is composed of a quadrangular enclosure with round flanking towers and a lower court adjacent. Its interior courtyard is picturesque. Inside, admire a rich collection of 17th- and 18th-century ivory carvings, including the lacy folding fans for which Dieppe was known. The castle was founded in 1188 and destroyed in 1195. Restored in the 14th century, the castle was later in large part reconstructed by Charles des Marets. Make Musee de Dieppe a part of your Dieppe vacation plans using our Dieppe holiday website.

  • For sure the visit of Dieppe Castle is a must in Dieppe. Nice castle, excellent view on the city. The museum itself, I mean, okay if you have time, if you will miss it, not a problem. Thanks to the city of Dieppe, parts of the castle you can see without buying a ticket. Anyways, best is the view…
  • Had to push the bike up the hill but well worth the effort! The museum contains many paintings of Dieppe some by famous artists Also an amazing collection of fine carvings in ivory.
