Raised from the sea, this World War II ship now houses a naval museum in the city's port.
Nantes' naval ship museum.
Since the late 80s, France has had its first floating naval museum aboard the Maillé-Brezé, a French naval vessel hit and sunk during World War II. The Nantes Marine Tradition Association secured its designation as a historical monument and its recovery as a symbol of Nantes' naval tradition. After its rescue from the depths and subsequent restoration, the Maillé-Brezé became a gigantic ship museum ship floating next to the Quai de la Fosse. Open daily with free admission if you have the 'Nantes Pass' tourist card. A visit includes a guided tour inside the destroyer and its engine room, with explanations about life on board, weaponry, threat detection and defensive capabilities.
