About

The hull of a "gabare" fitted with a mast and folded sail, lies on the paved ground moored alongside a quay of the Loire... Housed in the former château stables (a listed building dating back to the late 17th century), through real-life reconstruction, this museum retraces the history of bargemen, river transport and river traffic; the epic tale of Loire navigation and the social and economic life it generated in the surrounding area. The highly documented museum is the reference for the history of Loire marine life, and also contains rich collections of earthenware, maps, tools and historical objects, displayed through modern and educational scenography (interactive terminals, films...).

Le musée retrace l'histoire de la navigation sur la Loire, les échanges commerciaux, la vie des mariniers, grâce à une collection unique d'estampes, de faïences et d'objets d'art.
