With our small tour group, we visited the Presbytere museum. There are some recreated scenes with mannequins showing events from the lives of people important to Rennes le Chateau. The museum is worth a quick visit if you're in the town.

As this was my second trip, I allowed time to see the museum. The nice part about this was that you got to go in the garden and up in the tower. I think it was worth the small admission fee.

A beautiful setting with stunning views and lots to make you come away with your own ideas about the mysteries surrounding the church and Sauniere. Worth visiting just for the views from the towers.

The museum is certainly worth a visit, mysterious hype notwithstanding as gives you access to some stunning views from the walls and tower. But the story of Father Berenger Saunieter, his unexplainable wealth and possible links to a DaVinci code type conspiracy add some spice...More

It worth visiting this museum to gain an understanding of the possibilities of what history could have been around the Templars and Mary Magdalene.

Calm and relaxing atmosphere, a real mystery in history. Lots of information and good explanations. Views were stunning, on a hot day it's hard to absorb all the information.

Well presented museum explaining the history and life of Sauniere. Lovely gardens but quite a few steps. On a very hot day it was too warm to stand and read all the information given in multiple languages. Neat little shop with lots of books at...More

Diane & I visited while in the area in July - fortunately it wasn't too busy, I'd imagine the steep, single track village access road is a nightmare in August! The museum itself is extensive and well laid out with multi-language descriptions of the exhibits,...More
