    This museum was part of a package on a total of 4 museums. It was said of the man in the ticket booth that it was also in English. But pretty much the only thing that was in English were signs on old chairs that said "please don't sit on chair". There were more films along the way, which also was only in French. Could you just have put subtitles on. In General, the exhibition was random and hard to see what it had to do with the city. Especially when you also not beheld a piece of what was and was said. Would not recommend other "non French-speaking" to visit this museum. Neither did the others on the ticket. A waste of time. It would just be for air conditioning on a hot summer day!

    Included in the pack of the 4 museums, it is not part of the worth. Lovers of model boats may find solace?

    The Museum presents interesting information about boats. However the price is really too high for the length and the quality of the visit. The Museum will deserve to be completely rebuilt and modernized to be more pleasant to visit.
