Set alongside the old quay this museum,dedicated to sailing and the sea ticked all the boxes in every way. The exhibits, both large and small , wonderfully complimented the large old rooms and overall I rated this a first ranked establishment. You'll need something over an hour to appreciate this attraction. Enjoy

If you're in Douranenez I wouldn't miss this museum. Initially we went to history of the boats on shore and although good for history with lots of excellent exhibits it was a bit disappointing as all written commentary was in French (as it probably should be as we were in France but we like to be spoiled!!). We probably spent about an hour admiring the exhibits then went outside. Outside on the water were several restored boats. I really enjoyed this since it gave me an appreciation of what life was and is on working boats. Since my whole working life has been on land, it is refreshing to see what work is like on the sea.

Sure there are boats, reflecting the region's very long and successful fishing industry (the Romans exported sardines from here), but they are moored in the quay where you can board and wander round several, and they are inside the museum together with a few fishing boats from other places( look for the wooden carved crocodile outriggers on the one from Papua). Included is an exhibition from Roman times and an oral history of the impact of the declines of the region's fishing industry. Great for children too - there's worksheets in French to locate and discover things.

... worth a visit, particularly for the special exhibitions. We‘ve enjoyed „L‘empreinte de Rome“: It explains the ways the Romans lived (the notabilities lived in huge villas at the coast - the rest in rather big cities that lost around of 80% of their population at the end of this period, at around 400 AD) and made their living in Brittany (sardines made into fish sauce that had to be transported to Rome ...).
