Diving into the maritime history of Concarneau! At the entrance to Concarneau’s famous Ville Close (walled town), visitors will find a unique museum where they can explore Brittany’s exceptional maritime heritage.
The museum, officially recognised as a “Musée de France”, houses a collection of work tools, everyday objects, real boats, models and much more. There’s plenty to discover and share whether you’re visiting with friends or family.
A jewel of the collection, the Hémerica, a side-trawl fishing vessel, is moored at the museum’s pier. The tour of this vessel, which benefited from a vast restoration campaign in 2014, is an immersion into the daily life of its sailors, from their living quarters to the gangway and the fish hold. An absolute must-see!
