    Beautiful presentation of objects related to the navigation and trade in the 17th century. Pleasant and even moving. Where we discover that European countries already imported Chinese products...

    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.

    Fascinating history. Spent almost an hour in here. Use the audio guide to add extra detail.

    This is the place not to be missed in there region. Beautiful place with a great view of the ocean. Interesting Museum, with a true story that builds during the visit. The Audio guide is very well built. An afternoon well spent in this place that has so many stories to tell.

    This place is worth the visit. It is nice to the Tower of the Citadel on foot along the walls that give a beautiful view on the sea and Lorient. The Museum on the East India Company is very well done and interesting: I recommend
