Part of a wide choice of cultural visits offered in the Languedoc Roussillon region of France, the Maritime Museum in Sète celebrates the precious and rare legacy of shipbuilder André Aversa.

Containing model ships complemented by jousting sets, costumes, musical instruments, battle bulwarks and ornaments, spears and trophies, the museum’s collection traces the social and economic history of the port of Sète from the 18th century to today.

The Maritime Museum is located on a listed site in the former premises of IFREMER, a 1970s, anonymous, low rise building abandoned for a decade (located between the marine cemetery and the Marine theatre).
