Specialty Museum Museum
The town of Toulon has a famous maritime museum, Musee National de la Marine . It is an extremely visited and liked museum of France. The collection at the museum dates back to Louis XV of France. The entry fee of the museum is quite nominal and the tour information is very good. It is located at the end of the wharf near the naval base. The audio guide explains the role of the port of Toulon in the navy. The paintings of the port, which are displayed in the museum, are exceptionally fine and captivating. To visit each point of the museum and to see every item on display takes a total of around one hour twenty minutes, which is not very much when you want to have a nice time.

  • Passing through Toulon consider visiting this beautiful Museum retracing the history of our military naval heritage with this beautiful city of sailors. Nice and quiet place abounded of unique pieces. It is unfortunate to not close this visit by a retired Navy ship visit.

  • I you Council this magnificent trip full of surprises. It indulges in corridors at the pleasure of the ships, armament or sculptures. The explanations provided to the walls as well as with the audio guided allow a perfect visit. Recommended!

  • The National Museum of the Marine Toulon is a great and educational way to spend an afternoon out of the heat. The exhibition was very informative and there were lots of different items on display, so it never got boring. I learned a lot about naval engineering at Toulon! An audio guide of your language of choice was included in the admission free, and the explanations were thorough. The only reason I do not give the museum five stars is that the item descriptions are only in French, and at least English as an additional language would be nice as well. The audio guide only covers selected exhibits and there were many items with French labels which I could not quite understand. I would have loved to to understand everything.
  • Very nice museum. Great walking tour radio. Cheap admission.
  • Awesome museum! We were on a cruise, and it was very easy to get to. So interesting, and had audio tours in many languages. We had a blast, even though we were pretty exhausted.
  • Great little maritime museum with rich history. They have a couple of huge models of ships that were used for training purposes back in the day. Lots to see!
  • It was an interesting exhibition, but I was disappointed about only seeing French notes and not a single English one. Although there was English audio guide, it hadn't covered all the material.
