Come and visit La Cité de la Mer in Cherbourg, a family attraction all about man’s adventures under the sea, and a must when you are in Normandy. You can spend the whole day here and go round “Titanic, return to Cherbourg”, an exhibition which has its like nowhere else in France. It is on the theme of the celebrated liner, but also on emigration*. You will also be able to listen to the Captain of Le Redoutable telling you about his life on board the largest submarine open to the public in the world**. Then you will gaze in awe at our 17 aquariums, including the magical, 11-metre-deep, Abyssal Aquarium.

* When there is a cruise ship visiting Cherbourg harbour, the Emigration area will be closed to the public. The Titanic area remains open.

** for reasons of safety, children under five are not allowed to visit Le Redoutable submarine
