About
For over 400 years, the Citadel rings the city. Element of the defence of the port the most important between Antibes and Toulon for centuries, it is now one of the few monuments of this magnitude of the Var coast. Proud of its rich maritime past, Saint-Tropez has decided to create a modern museum in the dungeon of the town's citadel, allowing all visitors to discover the daily lives of men and women who shaped over the centuries the Saint-Tropez of today.

Citadelle de Saint Tropez Musee d’histoire maritime has more nautical odds and ends as well as St. Tropez history than you could ask for but unless you are a real sea buff, it gets rather boring. The real plus is the visit to the top of the Citadelle that permits views over the entire harbor. Fabulous scenery and great photos! A temporary Keith Haring sculpture exhibit on the Citadelle grounds added some extra color during our visit.

Scenic old fortress turned into an interesting, unpretentious naval museum, with stunning 380° views.
The location is superb, but the best part is getting into the museum. With information in both French and English, the mixed media exhibits are appealing for both young and old.
Quite low cost by St Tropez standards, the 3euros entrance fee is a steal!
The exhibits are tastefully displayed and cover the true identity of Saint Tropez in the past 500 years.
Indeed, St Trop was not just a picture perfect fishing village, but it turns out it had much greater importance.
The exhibits cover commerce and fishing trips along Provence’s coast, as well as long hazardous voyages aboard large merchant sailing boats beyond Cape Horn, journeys along the coasts of Africa and India, and the age of luxurious liners. Amongst notorious Tropezian celebrities,
I discovered De Suffren, who had volunteered to help the colonists during the American Revolutionary War.
Highly recommended !

Climb up a few steps from the old city of Saint Tropez and you find the nice old fortress which includes a lovely museum of the sea, historical regional scenes. All located within the old walls of the citadelle. You have a nice look over the bays surrounding Saint Tropez. It is very lovely and interesting for children and grown ups as well.

Nice view from the roof terrace, the museum is interesting. Free parking just next to the citadelle in the low season.

It's definitely worth an hour or two of your time when in St Tropez even if just for the exercise to get up there and the views. It's low cost by St Tropez standards and well worth it. I'm not one to read everything and we glanced at most things and raced round in about an hour probably. Really enjoyed it. Very informative and nice to understand the history of the place.

you need some time to see this site , getting up to and throught the tour is about 2 hrs. minimum, at a fast pace. more time for the average person. i would recomend only when staying over night in santropez , not worth losing half your day when on a day trip.

It is a steep walk up to the Citadelle but well worth it. The entry is cheap (3 Euros for an adult). You follow the signs and it takes you through the history of the Citadelle and therefore St Tropez itself. The views from the top are brilliant. Well worth a visit despite the steep walk.

Great views of St Tropez from the citadelle. Very interesting maritime history of the region in a well designed museum. Modest entry fee makes it well worth it. However, it was odd to visit a museum that celebrated maritime achievements and the riches it the area gained from it without mentioning the slave trade. This was especially so on the huge sign that talked about the shopping list of spices and other delicacies they picked up on the west coast of Africa and the West Indies. When we asked we were a small notice that kind of shirked responsibility was pointed out to us and we were told there was more in a book to be found in one of the rooms. Although good overall, this glaring omission was the biggest glossing over of one’s history I’ve ever seen and should be addressed. It’s not right that this less palatable aspect of history should be brushed under the carpet or confined to a “separate exhibition” when it should be part of the narrative.
