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.
The expo is very nice, but it is purely dedicated to George Brassens, so you'd have to be a fan to really like it.
