  • Good museum. Shows even a bit of the historic slave trade done in Lorient. Could be clearer as in mentioning the specific local people who profited and trace where the wealth made with the slave trade is visible in the region today.

  • Fascinating history. Spent almost an hour in here. Use the audio guide to add extra detail.

  • Brilliant location on the beach....parking available. The east company museum is very informative with great models and artifacts...wonderful little gift shop!

  • Ludique et didactique. Deux heures de rêve. Parfait. Vaut le voyage

  • C'est l'endroit à ne pas rater dans là région. Lieu magnifique avec une superbe vue sur l'océan. Musée intéressant, avec une vrai histoire qui se construit pendant la visite. L'Audio guide est très bien construit. Une après midi très bien passée dans cet endroit qui a tant d'histoires à nous raconter.
