  • Designed as a discovery centre, Terre d’Estuaire explores the rich diversity of this “tongue” between earth and sea in this Atlantic Ocean estuary.

    Want to find out about the longest French river? What better than to comb, with Terre d’Estuaire, through the banks of the river Loire as it flows into the sea to learn more about its living fauna and flora, its commercial history and its industrial heritage. You can also play at being a wreck hunter or follow the flight of the storks. Here, migratory birds, inland water shipping and the coal-fired power plant are brought together for a common purpose. At the interpretation centre, you will find, under one roof, a permanent museum trail, a temporary exhibition as well as fun and interactive activities and workshops for all ages. An unusual balloon will take you to the skies above, 25 meters above sea level, to enable you to take in the stunning scenery down to where sea and land meet.
