Musée du sauvetage

Museum (GRAND-FORT-PHILIPPE)


Spoken languages : français


The former lifeboat hut has been converted into a museum, with photos, objects from the past and press articles telling the story of sea rescude, from the first lifeline launcher and its life ring to the modern vessels used by the SNSM (Société Nationale de Sauvetage en Mer), the French equivalent of the RNLI. A lifeboat bears witness to the last sea rescue operation from here before Dunkirk took over.
