The national marine museum celebrates French naval history, centered in Toulon. Most notably, the remaining French fleet was scuttled by the French navy in Toulon harbor in World War II rather then turning it over to the Nazis.

Visited this with friends during a visit to Toulon. Museum is well laid out with some magnificent old and new models. Displays are in French, English and German and the free audio guide adds a greater dimension to the history.

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.
