The Museum of legendary liners in Saint-Nazaire

A museum? Not really...

In fact, it's a world! A unique place in Europe allows you to discover, literally from the inside, the delightfully kitsch, old-fashioned, elegant world of legendary liners. In a few steps, you will go from the "Normandie" to the "Île-de-France", without forgetting, of course, the "France" itself... among others!

And when I say "from the inside", I mean it exactly, because you will go from corridors to lounges, from the bar to the royal suite... in real life!  And, nonchalantly lying on a deckchair on the promenade deck, you will dream in front of the sunset over the sea.

You will become a passenger for a day, but also a crew member, engine room, wheelhouse, cold room... or the director of a shipping company choosing the next lines of your fleet on a map!

Along the way, you will also discover hundreds of authentic furniture and objects, making up the largest collection of its kind in Europe.

In short, in Saint-Nazaire, a luxurious journey back in time!

Découvrez la magie des croisières d'antan, à la grande époque de l'Art Déco, à bord des plus beaux paquebots français: de la conception des navires à la salle des machines, sans oublier les intérieurs somptueux, un mobilier unique, des affiches publicitaires qui font rêver, l'artisanat du luxe français...
À travers les archives de la Compagnie Générale Transatlantique et des Messageries Maritimes précieusement conservées par l'association French Lines – affiches, photographies, dessins, aquarelles, objets, menus, pièces d'orfèvrerie... –, ce livre riche de documents inédits et de témoignages savoureux est une véritable invitation au voyage. Embarquez sur Rochambeau, France, André Lebon, Paris, Liberté, Antilles ou Île-de-France et partagez le quotidien des passagers – des loisirs sur le pont aux grands bals –, mais aussi celui des commandants, des officiers, des grooms ou des cuisiniers qui œuvrent en coulisses pour que chaque traversée soit un rêve inoubliable.
