The men, the nature and the landscape of the Bay

The Eco-museum of the Bay is situated in an old farm on the edge of the pre-salted land and benefits from a remarkable view over the Bay, the Mont-Saint-Michel and Tombelaine.

Discover and understand …

Over more than 400 m2, an exhibition on man, nature and the landscape of the Bay helps you to discover the different environments – the sea, the earth, the air and their "occupants". Take the time to understand the formation of the Bay and the action of man on the landscape. Follow a large painting which will allow you to follow the life of several animals « actors » at the end of the seasons. Decipher this avid eco-system which is complex, yet fragile. The fishing which is still practiced in the Bay and the fabrication of " ignifère" salt disappeared in the mid XIX century, are highlighted for their value. These different areas are illustrated by films, moulds, interactive posts and a "saunier" workshop which are open to all.
