  • Good museum. Shows even a bit of the historic slave trade done in Lorient. Could be clearer as in mentioning the specific local people who profited and trace where the wealth made with the slave trade is visible in the region today.
  • Brilliant location on the beach....parking available. The east company museum is very informative with great models and artifacts...wonderful little gift shop!
  • It is a museum about the history of France East India Company and the history of this fortress. Imports from Japan? Also, numerous exhibits and is very good. It is also the view from the fortress, history can be felt. Access the ferries from Lorient. I think it was cheaper. Above all, tourists are not so nice.
