1964: mission under the ice! The Espadon was the first French submarine to dive under the ice field. Imagine yourself diving down into the depths of the sea… Go through the passageway, examine the listening post, be amazed by the impressive torpedo tubes… All the members of the crew were in position. Now it’s your turn to go down into this steel giant to experience all the sound effects of life underwater, just like a submariner. As an official exhibit for Saint-Nazaire Ecomusée, the Espadon is the only floating submarine in France that you can board and visit.
The Espadon is closed for several months for major restoration work. The submarine is due to be open again in summer 2021, ready to offer visitors a whole new experience and an unforgettable journey under the waves!
