A nice insight of a France submarine. She lays inside a ww2 bunker made by the Germans. On top you have a nice view around of the Harbour of St Nazaire.

If the weather if poor, you can do worse than spend ~45 minutes in here. At EUR5 it's reasonably priced. Definitely go if you like models of naval ships and submarines. There are also some French naval history panels.
