  • Architecture is authentic and the explanations are clear, we learn a little more about the functioning of justice in the past and trade as well as the treasures discovered close to the Islands. Unfortunately the Museum is a little small, it quickly made the turn.

  • "Stop" on the Lérins Islands is already a chance. The opportunity to (re) discover a beautiful Mediterranean nature, pleasure of the eyes (landscape and splendid views) or even a pilgrimage through the centuries (Fort Sainte Marguerite / Monastery St Honorat) will satisfy visitors who are not necessarily all follower of a lazy "Tan on the Beach". Some would say that admission is charged... Yes! The boat to come it was too :-). Modest price, entrance to the Fort, entrance to the Museum for a few euros. So scan this objection, and live tour (tours) fully. While browsing the Fort, its bastions, ramparts, we can relive a story time. The one where our shores were not immune from some raids. Visiting the Museum of the sea, we discover is how, in the past, we knew keep drinking water, build on the huge tanks, etc... Frankly, it's a "must".

  • A good time with your family to visit this museum. Attention to young children, the stroller must stay home and there are stairs.
