The exhibition of the Musée de la Mer is entitled “Vivre aux Îles - Vivre les Îles”. It guides you through the history of the archipelago. It is a fascinating journey through time and all aspects of the culture of a population that bears the imprints of the sea and of island living. Scale models, artefacts, documents and photographs highlight this history and illustrate aspects of daily life, housing, fishing, navigation, shipbuilding, religion, education, commerce, festivities and various other activities. Throughout the year, the Museum offers a variety of temporary exhibits that explore subjects related to history and ethnology or to the visual arts and crafts.
