The Binic museum of popular art and traditions takes you back to the 19th century, both in Brittany and on the other side of the sea.
The Binic museum of popular art and traditions presents the Brittany of yesteryear, with its attachment to the sea and the land. Documents, fishing tackle and marine equipment evoke the great adventures of local fishermen, who ventured as far as Iceland and the coast of Canada. Binic was, in the middle of the 19th century, one of the major home ports for the fleet that used to trawl for cod off the Newfoundland coast. 500 sq. metres of exhibits showing the various headdresses, costumes, kitchen utensils, farm implements and traditional crafts and tools. Over 1,000 items evoking the local way of life in the 19th century.
