Trip Planner: Europe / France / Pays de la Loire / Loire-Atlantique / Saint-Nazaire / Escal'Atlantic
Hop aboard the Escal'Atlantic and take an interactive ride on the high seas. This mock ocean liner, newly renovated in 2013, is an immersion museum where you guide yourself through every nook and cranny of a luxury boat, even the bridge. Almost every display has an interactive game installed that challenges you to become a ship’s captain, or a shipping company owner. You'll be responsible for guiding your vessel to success.
The history and economy of the entire world was once reliant on steam driven ocean liners. This museum retells that history, emphasizing the ocean liner’s vital role in the bigger picture of humanity’s development. A visit to Escal'Atlantic represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Saint-Nazaire trip planner to plot your vacation.

Exposition is nothing special. And it is way too dark inside. It looks like that at that time the ships were sailing only during the night. more »
Excellent set up. I thought it was going to be about the Submarine Pens but its not. But still its very well done and we enjoyed it. The young men that were working today especially the one who greets you when you 1st enter was very good. He is a great ambassador for your company.
What an amazing surprise...I visited the old U-Boat pens when I was a child, now...well, it's wonderful!
