The MMM si creating a bridge between the sea world and the arts.

On the shores of the Garonne, in the heart of the maritime history of Bordeaux, that once was the biggest port of Europe, the Musee Mer Marine takes center stage.

We call it museum thanks to its wide and high standard collections. It aims at passing on history and knowledge; a place that foster exchanges and art in general.

Art is hidden not only in exploration techniques but also in the sailors’ daily lives.
