Saint-Tropez’s maritime museum

Proud of its rich maritime past, Saint-Tropez has decided to create a modern museum.

It is located in the dungeon of the town’s citadel. All visitors are allowed to discover the daily lives of men and women who shaped over the centuries the Saint-Tropez of today.

Visitors will follow the town’s seamen across the seas of the world, whether on short trips or fishing expeditions along Provence’s coast, voyages aboard large merchant sailing boats beyond Cape Horn, journeys along the coasts of Africa and India or on liners of the famous Far East steamship company. The museum of maritime history is an invitation to discover famous Saint-Tropez heroes such as the Bailli de Suffren, the General Allard or Hyppolite Bouchard as well as thousands of anonymous folk who served the nation aboard the navy’s vessels or who faced stormy seas aboard merchant ships.

"Today the World comes to Saint-Tropez, we will tell you about the times when Tropezians travelled the World" Laurent Pavlidis
