Cité de la Mer

Recommended
The huge hall of the former ocean liner station is today entirely devoted to the maritime world and is home to the Cité de la Mer. Bathyscaphs and submarines celebrate humankind's ingenious exploration of the oceans. A visit of the Redoutable, France's first nuclear submarine, provides a fascinating insight into this universe. Aquariums display the treasures of the ocean, its fauna and flora, deep-sea diving and marine archaeology.
