Cité de la Mer (City of the sea) is a really great museum for young and old. We all know of the great past of Marine exploration that France holds (think of Jacques Cousteau and you know enough). This museum tells about the submerged secrets of the seas and oceans, the colourful marine life and the history of sea exploration. Cité de la Mer is also very interesting for children, that get explicit attention throughout the various sections in the museum. The museum is situated in the magnificent building of what used to be the Transatlantic "Station"
