A nice insight of a France submarine. She lays inside a ww2 bunker made by the Germans. On top you have a nice view around of the Harbour of St Nazaire.

If the weather if poor, you can do worse than spend ~45 minutes in here. At EUR5 it's reasonably priced. Definitely go if you like models of naval ships and submarines. There are also some French naval history panels.

This museum is filled with information about French naval and maritime history and spans several centuries. There are huge scale models of ships dating from centuries past to the modern era. Grab an audiotape and listen to accounts of naval battles while gazing at large paintings, of which there are many. This museum is a real educational experience for history buffs. There are a couple of films but they were in French. Some of the informational placards are in English but most are in French. Nevertheless, it was still an interesting place to visit.

What a great place for naval history buffs. The museum is packed with maritime art works and case after case of very large and detailed scale models of ships from sail all the way to the modern age. Some of the scale models have open hulls so that you can see the inner spaces. The modern French military models are stunning. The day we were there a group of curators were busy restoring old crockery used on ships. If you have any interest in history or naval subjects you should hop on the Metro and get off at Trocadero station. The museum is right at the top of the exit stairs. You will love the place.
