The museum of the French East India Company is very interesting and well done with a nice mix of artefacts, videos and dioramas. The only negative point is that sometimes there is just not enough info on some of the artefacts

Not much in the museum for the price. Very disappointed with lack of any English translation on the exhibits at all considering Brittany is very popular with British tourists and expats. I would suggest saving your money and walking the walls around the fort. We have been to Port Louis many times and finally decided to go into the fort , maybe bad idea.

A truly historic place to visit with plenty to see. I thought it was a little expensive and there is no concession for pensioners. Also an important part of the museum was closed for renovation, a part that I had really wanted to see, however, the rest of the museum is very interesting with models of the ships used by the French India Company and some of the treasures brought back.

We are travelling by bike and stopped to visit the museum. After locking the bikes outside we asked to the local mediateque to leave our bags there, since in the museum is not possible to enter with bags but they don't offer any lockers. The woman selling tickets has been very unpolite and rude with us since the beginning and the same attitude had the guard. When we mentioned that we were not happy with the way they had welcomed us, he just smiled at us. On top of that, the woman selling tickets doesn't even speak a word of English, she doesn,t even understood the word "ticket" and all this ruined my whole experience in a museum which is, instead, worth a visit.

A surprise visit as we got lost and ended up in Port Louis and not Lorient, where we found this gem of a musum. Fascinating stories, models and maps in every room and a vivid description of how Lorient, the gateway to the East became so important. The baby elephant is sweet and heart rending ! Take a picnic for the ramparts and enjoy day out looking over the bay. Loads of space for children to run around outside, but the museum is more for curious older children than young toddlers.
