Museums & heritage
Brest is one of those cities deeply marked by the bombings of the Second World War, as evidenced by its typical rebuilt architecture. Brest's many museums will help you discover its history, in which the sea has always played an essential role. A number of heritage treasures, spared by the War, are also worth a visit and are among the city's must-sees. These include the Château de Brest, home to the Musée de la Marine, and the Tour Tanguy. Marine sciences are also an integral part of Brest's identity: don't miss a visit to Océanopolis, the ocean discovery center, and 70.8, the gallery of marine innovations located in the heart of the Ateliers des Capucins. Both offer fascinating insights into the world of science in a fun, family-friendly way!
