Much has been done to upgrade the museum and its exhibits and artefacts as well as the historic fishing boat, which you can walk through. Allow a good couple of hours for the visit - you need to accept the fact that French tourist traps...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.

Follow the signs from the car park to the Musee, and you will find an amazing mini town inside the fortress. This is well worth a few hours to explore the whole of the fortress, especially the walls.
