A range of tours has been developed by the staff of the museum to enable both adults and children to appreciate and understand everything there is to know about life on the high seas. There are also guided tours available of the port and the fish auction rooms and workshops : seamanship (knot tying), 'Ptit mousse" workshop (model making for children 3/6 ansd 6/10 yeards old), historical visits of La Turballe.
