Musee of 19 ieme siècle vessel models primarily. Wonderful old church with not much of value to view inside other than a decommissioned church.. In a historical maritime location such as this I expected very much more. Plan on about a ten minute visit.

Interesting but sadly mostly information is in French. I was able to understand some of the descriptions of items due to school French lessons. Would be useful to have other languages as it is an interesting little museum.

You can spend apleasant half an hour here but not much more. Quite a small museum, not a great deal to interest families. Lots of cafes and bars around this area.

For an extra E1.50, one can visit the prison (it has a street named after it). It is next to the museum and according to Annie, more interesting by far. It certainly shows the punishments prisoners underwent, but also life in general at the time;...More
