About Le Musée de la Mer

Le Musée de la Mer has been installed since 1990 in a former cod drying room built around 1880, at the height of the fishing that the Paimpolais practiced in “Newfoundland” and “Iceland”. This museum retraces the great era of Terres Neuvas. Since 2005, the museum's fixed collection has dealt with the life of the “Icelanders”, with fishing “in Iceland”, then evokes some maritime aspects of which the Paimpolais were the actors-witnesses during the 19th and 20th centuries.
