We visited here last year after being to the area many times. The staff are very knowledgable and polite. Anything you want to know about the area they will know.

We spent an idyllic afternoon in "La Venise Verte" last August and I returned again this summer to spend a few more pleasant hours. Marais Poitevin, and in particular, Coulon and Arcais are very pictureesque and can be thoroughly recommended.

We were greeted at the start of our visit by a fantastic guide who tried her very best to explain to us in English about the context of the region. We were fascinated by the boat building room and everything was presented in both French and English. The video was fascinating - so much so that our very restless 6 and 2 year olds sat through it too! Well worth a visit in this beautiful location!

It was very interesting to visit this small museum on a rainy day, especially as it explains a lot of the landscapes and features you come across while travelling in the Marais Poitevin. Almost all explanations are also in English and the employees took a lot of trouble to see that we could follow everything.

A good jump off point- the Marais Poitevin itself is stunning, take a barge, a walk and enjoy the local food!
