Brest Castle National And Navy Museum - Review

The castle is the town’s oldest monument, and overlooks one of the largest roadsteads in the world, a highly strategic location. Considering that it’s been use for 1700 straight years (the Romans erected the first defences here in 3rd century AD), it can effectively be called the world’s oldest castle. Look closely at its architecture, and you’ll spot a flow of changing styles – a result of the fortification constantly adapting to possible threats from the sea and land. Read up on its long and extensive history if you can! You can walk the walls of the castle for wonderful vies of the harbour and the city.

Today, the castle houses one of the five French maritime museums. Like the others, it has an extensive collection of model ships, sea instruments, weapons, paintings, sculptures and art.

  • A museum that takes you through the history of the castle and of Brest. The entrance fee comes with a very good audio tour. We spend almost the entire afternoon here, enjoying the tour and the views from the towers.

  • Great fortress. lots of displays. lots of building works going on. Also navel base limits you to some ramparts and underground passages. Nice place though. good views of the new bridge and new cable car.

  • An interesting walk through history

  • Excellent historic information.

  • Really interesting with audio guide
