  • The title is because I walked to the museum: the topography of Sète is as weird as hell. It's on a spit of land which closes off the Etang de Thau, but there is also a little mountain a few hundred...

  • Amazingly unfriendly man & 1 woman at reception. The other woman seemed nice but didn't get much of a say. We arrived at 0945 in Sète & by the time we got to the place by bus it was 11AM. The guy moaned we hadn't left enough time & should come back at 2PM but there seems to be nothing nearby. He was more interested in not having you there & getting you out for their 2 hour lunch than sharing this place with you. It's mostly just an audio tour, albeit a good one. You can likely get the videos online & fill in the rest with a biography. If it was better located with vastly better staff it would be worthwhile.
  • My wife is a fan of many years who was delighted to find a Museum of George's on our visit to Sete. Although I don't speak French there's a English audio guides but none of the exhibits have translations. Even so I enjoyed the whole presentation with an In Concert which was very good, my wife translated the gist of the individual songs.
