National maritime museum

The national maritime museum is the reference institution for maritime questions, across all categories, thanks to its network deployment on the French territory: Paris, Brest, Rochefort, Port-Louis and Toulon.

Thanks to the rich permanent collections and temporary exhibitions, the cultural offer of the five museums and the Ancienne École de Médecine Navale (Former Naval Medical School, in Rochefort) let the public understand the issues that face the marine universe.

This institution is also a major research center thanks to a preservation and resources center, a document library and a photo library.
