  • Set inside an amazing bunker, the submarine museum in Lorient brings the battle of the Atlantic to the surface and explains how crews survive at depth.

    The Keroman submarine base is of great historical importance in the context of World War II. Built by the Germans in 1941, it housed around 30 U-boats and a submariner rescue training centre. It's the oldest remaining base and the only one still open to visitors. Davis Tower - renamed after the war - is a stunning setting for an original multimedia tour. With the battle of the Atlantic in the background, it traces the history of shipwrecks and submariner rescues. The museum features a fine collection of films, archive images, scale models, eye-witness accounts and unusual objects recovered from the Lorient coast from the 40 or so ships that were wrecked or scuttled during World War II.
