Escal'Atlantic, Saint-Nazaire

3.9
Hop aboard the Escal'Atlantic and take an interactive ride on the high seas. This mock ocean liner, newly renovated in 2013, is an immersion museum where you guide yourself through every nook and cranny of a luxury boat, even the bridge. Almost every display has an interactive game installed that challenges you to become a ship’s captain, or a shipping company owner. You'll be responsible for guiding your vessel to success.

The history and economy of the entire world was once reliant on steam driven ocean liners. This museum retells that history, emphasizing the ocean liner’s vital role in the bigger picture of humanity’s development. A visit to Escal'Atlantic represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Saint-Nazaire trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • We were with two children (aged 2 and 6) and it was very fun. Great time allowed to live a cruise. However, the price of admission is a bit expensive (14euros)

  • +: precise and detailed information on the sets of cabins, beautiful especially the last staging -: difficult to do with strollers due to the stairs. Predict 2 h - 2 h 30

  • Visited the cruise ship museum and drove around looking at the cruise ships under construction. Cool.
  • A must place to visit at Saint Nazaire. History in itself The tour is closed until 26jan 18 But you can arround easily
  • Great expo. Give a detailed impression of traveling on the big oceanliners since the beginning around 1840 till the disapeatance around 1960 due to concurrence with flying. Great scenes and soundeffects. After the cafetaria (on deck) is a short but strong movie and a original surprise in the end. :). Located in the concrete bunkers where the U-boats where stationed durin ww2. Probably best expo in St Nazaire.
  • On a cloudy day, we decided to visit Escal'Atlantic and were pleasantly surprised it was a very good exhibit that pleased and entertained the entire family.
  • Super
