  • A very nice and informative Museum. More and this makes a large part of its charm it is located in the old Citadel of Port Louis. To make it more fun you can access by Lorient, take the small boat shuttle that leaves from Lorient and arrives at Port Louis. The Museum and the Citadel are a 5 minute walk.

  • I regularly visit this museum that traces the history between Lorient and the Indies; a superb exhibition of objects from the India. We're never bored.

  • 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!

  • Quite interesting. Combined with the marine Museum. A lot to read but there are audio guides included in the admission price. The models and objects are very interesting and quality.
