  • in the exceptional setting of the harbour of Lorient, facing the island of Groix and in front of the small sea of Gâvres stands the Citadel of Port Louis which houses the Museum of the East India Company. Small, but very well presented with a pedagogy within the reach of all without vulgarity, you learn a lot on the trade with the Indies, different companies, naval construction, men. very nice items, beautiful porcelain and outstanding costumes. Beautiful presentations of restored tissue. Do not forget to make the tour of the ramparts!

  • Good Museum (which lacks perhaps interactivity for kids, especially) but very interesting for history buffs!

  • Exciting and well explained, this Museum will make you discover the history of the French India Company, life on board ships during these long expeditions, as well as their stopovers. Part is also dedicated to the slave trade. Children are not forgotten, with different models but also to a small animated movie very well done!
