Very Interesting

Rich museum. Many things to see about Marine History. A Good plan for windy or rainy days in Toulon.

Interesting museum that informs about the city and the role of the navy throughout the centuries. Most important information is written in french, english and spanish. Free audioguides in several languages.

This was the most interesting naval museum I've visited. The audio guide makes for much more info to be accessible giving historic as well as modern info. Very well arranged.

Today we desired to learn a little about Toulon and found the Maritime museum which filled several hours. We learned about Toulon's role in maritime history and Frances role in development of French world power.

This museum was disappointingly average. This made the €6 entrance charge feel expensive. Maybe its better for a rainy day visit.

The highlight of this museum is the scale models of ships which are correct in every timber. These ships were built by the captains to whom the real ships were to be given, so that they would know every detail before going to sea. There...More
