Come inside this reasonably priced museum which has boats and interesting displays. We particularly enjoyed the old trawler and the audio visual of a boat leaving port as if you were on board.

Very nice small museum with history of fishing in Concarneau. Exhibits and some fascinating films plus you can clamber around an old trawler ship that is moored to the museum. Well worth a visit, really enjoyable and quieter than the nearby busy Ville Clos where...More

Surprisingly interesting and the kids really enjoyed it especially going on a real fishing boat (what a great idea!!). Definitely worth a visit, and a welcome break to the hustle and bustle of the shops. Very well done.

Well worth a visit when you visit Concarneau - great value for money. The models were fantastic - so detailed. It has an excellent journey of fishing and we really enjoyed visiting the old fishing trawler. Make sure you include this in your itinerary.

What's there - lots of really good (and very detailed) models of boats and fishing processes - showing progression of fishing to modern times. Alongside the models are artefacts from coracles to to a large coelacanth. Museum also includes a self guided tour round a...More
