La Citadelle
56290 PORT LOUIS
The collections of the National Maritime Museum are displayed in the exceptional setting of the citadel of Port-Louis, a veritable sentinel of the harbor of Lorient. Located on a rocky escarpment and offering an exceptional panorama on the Island of Groix, the point of Gâvres and Larmor Plage, the citadel of Port-Louis is rich in more than 400 years of history.

One museum, two themes
The “Rescue at sea” course traces the history of an extraordinary human adventure based on the solidarity of seafarers. Founded in the middle of the 19th century, the first rescue societies brought together sailors who refused the inevitability of peril at sea. This space, unique in France, is a vibrant tribute to their heroism. A second theme, "Oceans treasures", invites you to travel to distant seas and the maritime routes of the Far East. You will discover ships which sank during their journey on the route to India and which have been brought to light thanks to underwater archaeological excavations.
