  • Given the weather we had, we thought to overlook the Museum. A friend of the region talked and he was right. This small museum is very interesting with regard to the ships and especially on the past of the city regarding the marketing of sardine. Some traditional costumes, which is a shame in my opinion. Do not miss!

  • This was absolutely first rate with masses of interesting local history, boats, photographs, costume and information. Highly recommended.  more »
  • The exhibits are well done and well organized tour circuit. Exhibition boats are present and in perfect condition. Good explanations on the specialty of the Harbour for sardine fishing and its old canneries. Too bad, the boats on the port can be visited until after April 1. A good time to spend in Douarnenez.

  • 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 nice Museum not to be missed. Real boats moored in the Harbour to visit. More very interesting Interior Museum. Congratulations for this nice Museum

  • Museum really interesting and entertaining my two children of 6 and 16 years have enjoyed. The boats are magnificent. A leaflet is handed to children so that they can answer questions about the Museum.
