Description

The Musée national de la Marine (National Navy Museum) is a maritime museum. The permanent collection originates in a collection that dates back to Louis XV of France. In 1748, Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau offered a collection of models of ships and naval installations to Louis XV of France, with the request that the items be displayed at the Louvre and made available to students of the Naval engineers school, which Duhamel headed. The collection was put on display in 1752. It has a unique collection including the rowing boat of Napoleon Bonaparte I, plus there are temporary themed exhibitions conducted that relate to sailing, navigation and water, such as one that was dedicated to light houses.
