Alphonse Allais's laboratory
Alphonse Allais was a writer and a journalist who was born in Honfleur during the 19th century.
He was also kind of a joker and a real humor fan. He started a carreer as a pharmacist, like his father, but quickly changed his mind.
Nowadays, above the chemist’s (which is still active), there’s a very small museum dedicated to Alphonse Allais and its funny collection, such as Voltaire’s skull at 17 years old, a cup for left handers, a real piece of the false holy cross...
On display are works by Eugène Boudin and other great impressionists : Dubourg, C.Monet, Jongkind…
Many of whom stayed and worked at the Saint-Simeon farmouse on the outskirts of Honfleur.
20th century artists, who were born or worked in Honfleur are well represented, with important works by Dufy, Friesz, Gernez and many others.
The museum also has a large collection of Normandy head-dresses, costumes and furniture. In summer the museum mounts temporary exhibitions.
