Recently renovated, this modern museum is located in the dungeon of the village's Citadel, allowing visitors to discover the true identity of Saint-Tropez as a maritime city through its last 500 years of history.
Visitors will follow the town’s seamen across the seas of the world, whether on short trips or fishing expeditions along Provence’s coast, voyages aboard large merchant sailing boats beyond Cape Horn, journeys along the coasts of Africa and India or on liners of the famous Far East steamship company.
The museum of maritime history is an invitation to discover famous Saint-Tropez heroes such as Bailli de Suffren, General Allard or Hyppolite Bouchard, as well as thousands of anonymous folk who served the nation aboard the navy’s vessels or who faced stormy seas aboard merchant ships. You can also learn about the town's daily life and relationship to the sea, through traditional fishing techniques.
Open every day except January 1st, May 1st and 17th, November 11th and December 25th.
From October 1st to March 31st, 10:00-17:30. From April 1st to September 20th, 10:00-18:30. Guided tours at 11:00 and 15:30 (must be booked). Tickets cost 3€.
