This was our second visit to the museums and we went again thanks to the badgering if our teenage daughter. It is well worth a second visit. Interesting to see how industry, sailing in particular, has sprung up in some of the K3 pens and those in K1 bringing a new lease of life to these historic submarine pens. Very... More

We have previously visited the Flore submarine and museum and also the Eric Tabarly museum with a sailing trip which we can thoroughly recommend. This review is about the visits to the submarine pens and K3. I think it worth pointing out that there are separate attractions on the site, BUT tickets for all of them can be bought at... More

I am not someone who can deal with tight spaces but this was a great experience. It gives you an idea of what went down during WW 2. One wonders how sailors coped within the confines of a sub. Its awesome and eerie at the same time. A note to visitors- Try to book online if its possible. We managed... More

We arrived not long after it opened around 10.30am. The queue was out the door and moved very slowly. The ticket office/shop is very small and people were everywhere. After waiting over half and hour we got to the ticket desk and were told all tours were fully booked and to come back another day! Then the lady looked further... More

Arrived on 7th Aug. at around 1pm, to be told next available entry was at 6pm ... or book for another day. If appointments must be booked, it ought to be mentioned in the brochure/info to avoid wasting people's time. I don't remember seeing it there. We left for the beach.

After a tiresome journey through the town on foot we arrived at the till and they told us the only time we can visit the submarine base is in 5 hours, at 18:30. Kind of late for a kid. I didn't find any of this info on the webpage. My son was disappointed. I think that there shoukd be clearly... More

We booked tickets in advance, however I had my bag stolen with the tickets in. We still went to the museum for the agreed time slot and they refused us entry. We offered to repay but still refused. I think this is absolutely unacceptable. My 7 year old son was in tears outside after the refusal. I can completely understand... More

We visited Lorient submarine base in July 15 after reading the varied reports on Trip Advisor. It is not at all well sign-posted for either where to park or where you go for the tour. The tour office, which is relatively small and was under-staffed when we visited, is located by the stern of the French Submarine that forms part... More

A massive complex of submarine pens. Truly amazing. A must see foe any WW2 enthusiasts. Information and visiting hours change and they are not well documented. My advice: call 2 weeks ahead and get the up to date days and hours of the tours. No self guided tours possible. I loved the tour, our guide was very good and knew... More

Finding the site is quite difficult there is virtually no signs, so get a good sat nav. The whole site is also pretty confusing . The buildings are massive and stand out and there are a number of places to buy tickets. The staff speak some english and we were given the impression you could walk around the site. This... More
