  • Rip-off! Small display, just 2 rooms. Much material on floor rather than on walls. Video display not working. Save your money, unless you speak French and can understand the guided tour.
  • The museum is small but very interesting. It tells the story of the Roscoff onion but especially that of the Roscovites who crossed the channel to sell their onions in London and Wales. By necessity, these merchants, nicknamed by the English the Johnnies, spoke perfect English. There's a soulful side to these Johnnies.
