The Sea fishing Discovery Center

In the new 2020 exhibiton « Embarquement Immédiat » (Immediate Embarkation), people embark virtually on board of « Bara Breizh », a deep-sea trawler from Le Guilvinec. Each space on the ship has been reconstructed : kitchen, lazarette, interactive bridge, berths, showers, cloakroom, fish hold, engine room… This is a unique opportunity to experience a real immersion in the daily life of fishermen by sharing a tide with a local Bigouden crew, without getting seasick !

During the 2nd exhibition « De la Mer à l’assiette » (From Sea to plate), discover the product of the fishermen’s quest : fish ! Follow its journey through the fish market, the fish shops, the fish monger’s… to our plate !
