  • We went specifically for the visit of the Sub, but the latter barely 15 minutes. Only a floor can be visited. Expensive for what it is.

  • We start the tour with a museum that gives us information on Lorient before, during and after the 2nd World War. Then we have explanations on the different positions in a submarine and information on the flora. After the Museum, place on board for the visit of the submarine. This is done with an audio guide that allows you to take the time that you want because it fires (individually) that when we walk into a room. Attention for claustrophobic people or portly. The driveway is very narrow. Think of the carrier. It is possible to take a PASS at the city of sailing to combine 2 or 3 visits and get a cheaper rate.

  • Visit to do, even with young children. Plan 1:30 see more to have time to see (video and text)

  • The submarine itself is fascinating, and well worth the trip - the audio commentary is good and authentic. The museum has some interesting aspects, but despite the claims of the staff, is only partially translated - large sections are French only, so if you can't read/speak French, you miss a lot.
  • We where a little confused over the ticket booking as there are different parts to the museum. However we booked a spot to go through the museum. They have a really interesting way to display the information . We then went through to the submarine with an audio tour. Definitely worth a visit.
  • This is a really interesting exhibit. Cramped quarters for the crewman that worked and live onboard!
  • Sous Marin Flore really worth a visit,great to see the inside of the submarine, living conditions so small, great to see torpedo tubes, periscope, instrumentation, it's really built for battle
  • Brilliant day out for all ages great value
