  • Maritime Museum with lots of models of boats and videos explaining the Museum. All, and only, is in French. The entire Museum is seen in less than half an hour. There is a bonus to be able to visit the four museums of the Mont-St-Michel, discounted for students.

  • My visit to mont saint Michel was fantastic, no words for. But this museum I found personally 1 of the lesser. This museum is about the shipping and all you here got to see is boats and ships. Huge lot! Now, for people with an interest in this museum their shipping will definitely charm you.
