From the Corderie Royale, to the Musée de la Marine, to the top of the Accro-mâts, via the Fabrique de l'Arsenal and Oceana Lumina, embark on a day and evening of maritime adventure. Embark on the maritime adventure of the Arsenal des Mers for a day! In this natural and heritage setting on the banks of the Charente, discover all the secrets of the maritime adventures that have taken place in Rochefort's arsenal over the last 350 years. Today, you're the captain, the coxswain and the sailor! At the Corderie Royale, you can try your hand at the skills of the spinners and rope makers, and at the Musée National de la Marine, you can learn all about history from the rich heritage collections. If you dare, climb the Accro-mâts, a 30-metre high course! Last but not least, take advantage of what's new in 2023: La Fabrique de l'Arsenal, with its exhibition spaces, giant periscope and discovery of the boat Le Noé!
