Cité de la Mer Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Dive into a fascinating and deliberately interactive universe. The immense hall of the maritime railway station is today essentially given over to the Grande Galerie des Engins et des Hommes, dedicated to sea bed exploration. The exhibition space (1 500m2) is divided into two areas. The first houses an aquarium (more than 10m high), pools and theme-based presentations. The second explores the world of submarines, with a tour of Le Redoutable, France's first nuclear submarine.

    Pros

    Les bassins sont intéressants et beaux! Mais le plus impressionnant reste la visite du sous marin nucléaire Le Redoutable qui est passionnante!

    Cons

    L'expo sur le Titanic ne nous a pas sembler présenter un grand intérêt, en dehors de la visite du comptoir d'embarquement de l'époque.
