A polder, what's that? At the Maison des Polders, in Mont St Michel Bay, you can visit the museum and take some superb outdoor trails to discover the amazing story of how the land was reclaimed from the sea.
Polders, seawalls and salt marshes are uniquely typical of the landscape around Mont St Michel, fashioned by the sea and by man. The story of these unusual constructions is told in the Maison des Polders discovery centre, housed in a handsome 18th century building. Scale models, display boards and films tell you about the fauna and fauna of the bay, and about man's achievements. People who are walking the Greenway ('Voie verte') stop off there on their way to Mont St Michel to gather all the tourist information they need. And if you want to learn or see more, the Maison des Polders is the departure point for many commentated tours, bay getaways where you'll find out about biodiversity, the built heritage and the local skills and crafts.
