  • The "Ecole de Médecine Navale de Rochefort", was the first naval school of medecine in the world and it was founded in 1722 to train surgeons for duty on warships. The school moved to a pavilion at the new maritime hospital, the most modern in the country at the time, in 1788. In the 19th century, Rochefort-trained doctors were important participants in great expiditions and were very important in noting scientific descriptions of the natural phenomena they saw. Anatomical and natural history collections, as well as a library cover three levels of the museum.

    The school looks just the way it did in the late 19th century : the objects, books, and decor are exactly the same as when the establishment was frequented by scientists and doctors some over 150 years ago. This powerful, moving place, with a strong sense of history, combines science and technology, as well as political and social history.

    C'est la troisième fois que nous visitons ce musée. Nous le connaissons par cœur, mais nous ne pouvons nous empêcher d'y aller une fois par an. Nous y serons d'ailleurs une fois de plus ce samedi matin. La personne qui fait le guide est extra, elle explique très bien et nous avons envie de l'écouter et d'en savoir plus. Seul bémol, la bibliothèque, il est interdit de toucher les livres et je trouve que nous ne restons pas assez dans cette salle (à mon gout bien sur) car j'aimerai pouvoir m’asseoir et feuilleter les ouvrages d'époque Activités à faire d'urgence si vous passez dans le coin. Merci à toute l'équipe du musée
