  • Interesting to have a global vision of the history of the island. I loved the temporary exhibition dedicated to maritime links between Oléron and the continent.

  • The village was a largely rural town at the end of the 19th s. In a beautiful building, one can visit the museum dedicated to the history of the island. Through picturesque presentations, documents, photos or oral and written testimony, it gives a glimpse of the daily life of the inhabitants in the 19th s and beginning of the 20th century in the ground floor rooms. Level 1 offers exhibitions. In may 2017, it was dedicated to the bridge of the island (project, construction, tray...). A pleasant visit for families, consider using a pass on monuments to get a reduced price.
