The Croiseur Colbert is one of the country's biggest warships and belongs to the French Navy. Now with a new lease of life as a museum, you can retrace the life of the vessel from her construction in 1953 to her last mission in 1990 during the Gulf War. In addition to the photography exhibitions on board, a visit to the ship gives you a glimpse of what life must have been like for the sailors who lived and worked here. You'll come across all the signs of daily living, from the mess hall to the barber shop, the dentist's cabin and the hospital ward. Guided tours run often and there is free parking in front of the ship.
Well what can I say. I thoroughly enjoyed my time aboard the naval ship museum. The tour can take approximately 1 1/2 hrs, depending on your interest in the ship me and my family took 3 hours! We enjoyed very much the staff were extremely helpful, but we were not sure if it was because my surname was Colbert! :-) Which they found quite amusing!!!!.
A lovely gift shop with prices ranging from the expensive to the inexpensive such as wine, t-shirt, or the other extreme of picture postcards, pencils pens etc.
The only down side was our then 4 year old became tired after a while and found the stairs onboard the ship too much to cope with. I wouldn't recommend if you have very young babies in prams etc, but if you have older children they will really enjoy
Thumbs up from me & I will return!!!!!!!!!

Exciting! Not only the ship is itself a museum, huge but with helpful indications for a self guided tour. Are also contained many models of ships and submarines, photographs and technical informations that gives the opportunity to get a look on the french naval force since about 1950 to nowdays. It's full of stairs, and quite hot in the lower level, but I suggest the visit also for children (i carried with me my daugthers 2 and 4 years old): it's full of stimulating stuff !
