We visited on 30 May. It was difficult to find in the Dock area; there was a sign saying no through traffic which confused me.The great concrete mass of the German base towers above you and is protected by mesh wire as it appears bits are falling off. There are 2 parts to the visit. The first part describes the experience of Lorient during the occupation and the lives of the submariners. There is haunting music and incidental noises that throw one back to that time and plenty of artifacts such as sonar with all the ancient valves, periscopes etc. There are plenty of illustrations. The second part of the visit describes the cold war (60's) life on board the French submarine, Flore. One can go through each compartment of this submarine but you are warned not to touch any buttons switches etc. It is a great visit in this part of part of Brittany not far from Le Pouldu where we had a most enjoyable stay.
