As a group of ten British Tourists, we visited the facility on the afternoon of Monday 11th May 2015. The Museum and the tour of the French Submarine was really interesting and informative. Audio headsets are available for the submarine tour and it was most enjoyable. The second part of the tour involved a guided tour of the submarine pens.... More

Very interesting visit to Kerroman 3 (the U boat pen you can visit on a guided tour). Having read other reviews we weren't sure if there would even be a tour running so we went on Sunday to make sure. Follow the road signs for Les Base des Sous Marins and Eric Taberly and you will then find it. The... More

K1 was flooded but were able to lock our bikes up near the entrance to K1 and cross the pontoon to K3 and wander through the blast doors and along the back of the 7 pens and out the other... More

Firstly, I didn't go in the museum with the French 1964 u boat. I came to visit the Keroman U-boat base, constructed from 1941., now named after General Stosskopf ( French spy ). The vastness is outstanding. Being quiet I was able to walk every where through the pens on Keroman 1 and 2 the French uboat sits on the... More

The site proposes different attractions to visit, including the Flore submarine museum in itself, and a guided tour of the gigantic WWII bunkers. The visit of the French submarine and its museum are the main attraction, especially for families, as it is quite interactive and there is the opportunity to visit a submarine. It is impressive to discover how the... More

There are 3 tours you can do at this site - visiting the museum detailing history of the Cold War period, including a walk around a submarine, visiting the museum of sailing which doesn't open until 2pm or taking a guided tour around the German submarine bunkers. We opted for the latter. It cost only 6 euros per person and... More

Visited on 8.8.14 whilst on holidays near Pont Aven, Brittany. We tried to fathom out the web site before leaving home,but could not book in advance, as we did not know which day we would visit. The tour of the old French sub was fully booked before we arrived, but we had the "bomb-proof" buildings tour. Price was very reasonable... More

We arrived in the last week auf August and after waiting around 20 minutes at the entrance they told us that they do not provide English tours at this time of the year (They stopped a week before having other languages than French). Also the French tours were completely booked out and there was just capacity at late evening. The... More
