Start your visit as from 9:30 am (the visit lasts 4:30 on average), book your table at the restaurant Le Quai des Mers (02 33 88 75 60) and follow our signposted circuits to discover:

  • Le Redoutable, the largest submarine that can be visited in the world (accessible from 5 years old): two versions of the audio guide will be offered: one for the family and one intended for experts! Plan to take your own headphones, you can connect them directly to the audio guide (and other scenographic devices).
  • “The Ocean of the Future”: 3 floors of spectacular multimedia spaces where you will discover the last wild territory of the planet: the Ocean, with 17 aquariums on display, including the abyssal basin of 10.70m high.
  • The permanent area “Titanic, Return to Cherbourg” and the magnificent Baggage Hall.
  • In the auditorium, our two original movies : “20 days for Cherbourg” and “When the sea tells about Normandy

During your visit, we will be by your side to guide you. You can wash and disinfect your hands thanks to the hydro alcoholic gel terminals installed.

You will enjoy the open air spaces, once out of the submarine, discover it under her “belly” in the dock. Enjoy a view of the large artificial harbour before entering the Titanic course, or relax in the Northern garden at the exit of the aquariums.
