La Musée de Préhistoire et  d'Archéologie Sous Marine

    This is St. Rapheal's history museum, situated in the center of the medieval downtown. The building, now placed on the register of historic places, dates back to the 18th-century, and was built on the sight of a former Presbyterian church. The ruins of the church can still be seen in the courtyard of the museum.

    The permanent collection displays artifacts recovered from submarine expeditions carried out in the region. This includes pottery, tiles and other relics from Roman, Gallic, and Medieval times. The museum also presents finds that illuminate the life of prehistoric man in the area. These include artifacts such as ceramics, bronze and grave markers.

    The museum is located on the Parvis des Templiers in downtown St. Raphael. Entrance is free. The museum is open in the summer from 9:30 am until noon, and again from 2pm to 6:30 Tuesday through Saturday, 9pm on Thursdays. The rest of the year, the museum is open from 9am to noon, and 2pm to 5:30 Tuesday through Saturday.
