MuséoSeine

MuséoSeine tells the story of the river, its landscape and the people who live there in an original and interactive way. It’s the ideal starting point for learning about the Seine Valley from Rouen down to Le Havre.

MuséoSeine is situated right on the banks of the Seine and has a great amount of modern technology incorporated into its contemporary layout. The museum is divided into different interactive zones, each of which is designed to include something for everyone.

Tours start by visiting a Seine gribane-the last surviving example of these traditional working riverboats.

Next, you will be taken back in time to some significant places beside the river, where you’ll be immersed in the lives of the people who lived along the Seine.

Further on, you can relive the awesome power of the tidal bore- le mascaret, as well as the see other features, such as Pilotage, where you find yourself in the shoes of a river-pilot, fishing on the Seine or even leisure and past-times, all recreated from artefacts and archive footage and photographs.

 

MuséoSeine provides a games booklet for children aged 6-11, to guide them around and learn whilst having fun!

Each child leaves with their booklet and a gift of a flip-book illustrating le mascaret!

In a dedicated area, children can play at being sailors and take the helm of a ship.

Games involving hearing, touching and recognition help them learn about the river through play! There’s many activities to keep kids occupied whilst you can also fully enjoy your visit!
