    This small museum deserves a visit in order to understand what this type of fishing was made of courage, strength, solidarity between these men who unfortunately did not always return.

    Whenever we go to Fécamp we hope visit it. Unfortunately it is not always open.

    Museum requesting that has become more important in anticipation of the new Museum which little will be a day (more than 2 years late) yet I had visited a few years ago and it had been very interesting
