The Musée National de la Marine is one of the oldest maritim museums of the world.

The first collection was a number of model ships and naval machinery collected by Henri-Duhamel du Monceau, Inspector-General of the French Navy. From 1748 they were on display in the Marine Room at the Louvre.

Since 1943 the museum is housed in the Palais de Chaillot.

A part of the museum's collection goes back seventeen centuries in time.
