  • The Maison de la Mer is a living outdoor museum, and it organises guided tours in the ports of the Lorient region, providing on-the-spot opportunities to lean about the fishing industry and naval construction.

    It's 5am, time for the auctioneer to wake up. The computerised marketplace is open for business. Put on your white coat and cap and come to watch the fish-filleters at work in the sheds on the quayside. You're right in the heart of Keroman, Lorient's fishing port, and it's in full swing. After that comes a langoustine tasting. The Maison de la Mer discovery centre specialises in taking visitors to meet the men who make their living from the sea. During school holidays, this travelling centre of science and culture takes people who are interested in industrial tourism to see the shipyards and refit yards in Lorient harbour. It also arranges visits to Ifremer (the French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea). Wherever men and machines are busy at work, visits are organised either on foot or by boat.
