Châteauneuf-sur-Loire maritime museum Museum

This museum relates the most beautiful hours of river Loire, when gabarres (typical boats of this region) and barges used to cross the calm waters, since ancient times to the 19th century. Alas, it was before railroad appeared! It rang the end of this sailing... Châteauneuf harbour used to swarm with thousands of activities, on this river which used to be the main economical axis in France!

Here, you'll go back in time, with very rich testimonies: pictures, objects... in short, a real diving into mariners' life!

And also!
