Description

The hull of a "gabare" fitted with a mast and folded sail, lies on the paved ground moored alongside a quay of the Loire... Housed in the former château stables (a listed building dating back to the late 17th century), through real-life reconstruction, this museum retraces the history of bargemen, river transport and river traffic; the epic tale of Loire navigation and the social and economic life it generated in the surrounding area. The highly documented museum is the reference for the history of Loire marine life, and also contains rich collections of earthenware, maps, tools and historical objects, displayed through modern and educational scenography (interactive terminals, films...)."

"The Châteauneuf-sur-Loire domain was considered in the 17th century as a "little Versailles". The park transformed in the 19th century in an English park and planted with rare species, offers a green setting for the Museum of the Marine de Loire. The museum is installed since 1998 in the stables of the castle, classified as a historic monument. This pleasant setting, freely accessible, offers playground, picnic area and walking paths to the Loire and the port.
