Description

One of the finest museums in Finistère.

Housed in the oldest monument in Brest, the château de Brest, which has seen 17 centuries of history, the Musée national de la marine de Brest or National Maritime Museum of Brest is dedicated to the history of the Navy in Brest. It is also concerned with the history of Brest itself, intertwined with the history of the château.

The museum first opened in 1984, and its collections are divided between five museums of France, in the Palais de Chaillot in Paris, in the citadel of Brest, the Musée national de la marine in Port-Louis, Rochefort and Toulon.

Considered one of the finest museums in the Finistère region, the National Maritime Museum in Brest underwent a technological revolution in 2010 with the installation of audioguides which allow visitors from abroad to experience the museum and understand its collections more fully, following the collections in a fun way along a marked trail.

After the renovation of the donjon in 2012, the Paradis towers reopened in 2013 with five new rooms dedicated to the present day French Navy.

Sea dogs and landlubbers alike will enjoy diving into the mysteries of submarines, ships and navigation at the National Maritime Museum in Brest!
