  • Visit very nice and original. Children (3 and 5 years old) loved it. Free tour so everyone has their own pace.

  • Family visit that we all appreciated the visit of the boats afloat is a real plus. A shame that the rain have cut short our visit.

  • Great Museum with models, and of real boats that one can visit through the hold, machinery, rather than life outdoors and the cabin. On the other hand, the stairs down to the shims are often steep and can be dangerous. Caution!

  • Great place to visit with children or as adults. The boats that are moored up are amazing to visit. Three visits in five years.... wonderful.
  • Very interesting Museum for adults and children. During school holidays, there are workshops for children: learning of the nodes... you can visit a few boats, although some are still being restored. One can easily spend 2-3 hours.

  • On-site visit (in port) and in a museum classic. It is beautiful a boat. It's hard the life of a sailor and what work in the canneries at the beginning of the century. ..
