Located in a 17th century mansion, the first site of the National Museum of Marine in Rochefort opens its doors for us to introduce two recently renovated rooms: The Arsenal of Rochefort and La Dedaigneuse ('the disdainful'), a frigate of 12 built in Bordeaux in 1766, 'sister ship' of Hermione. The second site is located in the former School of Naval Medicine. There is a case of surgeon on board and many collections dedicated to the teaching.
An afternoon spent in the two museums can give an idea of maritime life from very complementary angles of views. Disclaimer : The management team of the destination has the possibility to change the opening days and hours without prior communication.
To complete the visit of the two museums by the construction site of The Hermione and the royal rope will completely carry you back two hundred years from today for all the day long!
