Only 5 euro entrance fee. Very instructive exhibition with lots of full scale models of boats and fishing gear. The visit of the fish trawler outside is recommended. It is giving you a good idea how the fishermen were living. I could not find any...More

Much has been done to upgrade the museum and its exhibits and artefacts as well as the historic fishing boat, which you can walk through. Allow a good couple of hours for the visit - you need to accept the fact that French tourist traps...More

Housed on an old fishing boat in Concarneau harbour, this is an enterprising and engaging museum with a wealth of model ships to keep your interest. As Concarneau still has an active fishing fleet which lands a huge variety of fresh fish and shellfish nearly...More
