Well, we have two kind of marine in Briare.

We have here two different worlds, two kind of seamen: river Loire's seafarers and Loire's lateral canal's sailors. Do you just imagine the abundant activity that ruled here?

Well, the museum summons up this magnificent era, with thematic rooms: reconstituting of quays where millers, coopers, washerwomen used to discharge slat, wine, wheat... in short, everything cities needed.

And also, don't miss the aquarium wall with its fauna from Loire... and of course the history of canal's sailing.
