    Situated a stone's throw from the port and the beach at the entrance to the channel, the Musée de la conserverie de Loctudy is the last remaining witness to the industrial, economic and social history of the fish canning factories on the Breton coast in the first half of the 20th century.
    The museum is the only one of its kind in France and one of only three in Europe, alongside the Fabrica de conservas in Portimao and the Novegian Canning Museum in Stavenger.
    The museum consists of a seaside villa and the former canning factory. Owned by Loctudy town council, the site is listed as a Historic Monument.
    With a view to striking a balance between the social issues of the working class - through the working conditions of men, women and children in fish canning factories in the first half of the 21st century - and those of the business world, through the history of the Le Gall family, and beyond that of factory-owning families in Brittany's Cornouaille region.
