Excellent value for money. Staff couldn't be more accommodating for us with a child with a broken leg. Lots of facts and things to see.

Amazing reconstruction of an ocean liner - at some points it was easy to forget that you were actually inside a submarine base! Without wishing to give out spoilers - the way you leave the attraction is possibly one of the highlights! With a brand...More

Lame lame lame! A few pieces of furniture and wall murals from the defunct ocean liner. Maybe if you've never been on a cruise ship you would feign some interest. I went because of the encouraging things said on TripAdvisor. I am now convinced that...More

To call this a museum is misleading. It is an ocean liner experience which is done so very well you could imagine you are actually at sea. As you progress around you pass through all the areas to be found on board from first class...More

We came off the cruise ship Discovery on a Sunday the 14th of May. It was a gloomy day threatening rain and if I hadn’t found reviews for this great museum we wouldn’t have come off the ship! Because we came from Discovery there was...More

Hello, happy to know that you enjoyed your visit at our "Ocean Liner Experience"! Saint-Nazaire is indeed the city of big ships, yesterday transatlantic liners, today elegant cruise ships. We have a great tradition of building these incredible ships, and Escal'Atlantic is another way of...More

A suprisingly good museum - better than i thought it would be. The idea is to take you through the various era of ships and see what life was like on board. It does it well and each section has a suprise in it that...More

Having read other reviews here we visited this amazing museum one afternoon. I can highly recommend it. I suffer from claustrophobia and this museum is inside with no outside winidows. The staff could not have been more helpful: I was walked around the whole site...More

I find French museums very innovative. This one is. Full marks to the creators. You will not fail to be impressed by it. Even if you have no interest whatsoever in liners.... I will not detail here all of the things to see, do and...More

Thank you so much for your enthusiasm about our museum, or shall we say "ocean liner experience". It's wonderful to read a review like yours! As to closing hours: during high season we stay open from 10 am to 7 pm without interruption (yes, in...More

This well conceived museum is like a tour of a transatlantic liner. One can easily imagine the life on one of these grand ships (though I think we'd prefer to do it 1st class)! Most was in French but enough in English to get a...More

We only visited this attraction because we had been warned about the queue at the submarine museum. We were very pleasantly surprised. The exhibits, layout and feel of the place were all great and told a very interesting story of the history of the town....More
