National Maritime Museum Brest

I've always wanted to visit this museum which is located in the Chateau de Brest above the original naval harbour. It is an impressive location but the museum itself was a bit of a let down, apart from the section on the eighteenth century dockyard, which was very interesting. There were some good exhibits too, the highlight being an original Kriegsmarine Seehund mini-submarine which was operated by the French navy after the war into the 1950's, a fact that I wasn't aware of at all. Not bad if you have a rainy day in Brest to kill but not as good as some other museums that I've visited on similar themes.


  1. No kidding! I just finished a resin seelhund by sgt`s mess.Those Men were brave,insane or both, to go anywhere in that thing.

  2. Well that's certainly something you don't see everyday.
