New attraction: situated on the former submarine base at Lorient, the Flore will soon open its doors for the first time to the public. Bearing witness to 50 years of military history in Lorient, the submarine will house both cultural and educational exhibits. Before entering the actual submarine, there is an exhibition in one of the hangars of the former base, tracing the history of the submarine base, its men, and its boats. This interactive visit will help you relive the everyday life of the submariners and understand the workings of these rather mysterious submersibles. During the visit, you can learn about the strategic role that the port of Lorient played in 20th century history. The visit comes to an end in the alleyways of the Flore itself, where, armed with an audio guide you can listen to the numerous tales and anecdotes told by former submariners.
