  • A museum close to the bottom of the Pont Transbordeur (Transporter bridge) is devoted to bridges. Audacious, unusual and challenging structures are highlighted.

    This museum "Maison du Transbordeur" is dedicated to the history of the Pont Transbordeur. This interpretation center is equipped with digital modules to understand the operation of the structure, its place in France and in the world.
    Since the closing of the Pont Transbordeur for renovation works, it is at the Maison du Transbordeur that you will find the sensations of a crossing aboard a reconstituted carrying platform. This virtual experience is free to access.

    The Sentier des Guetteurs, an artistic and interpretive tour, invites visitors to explore the secrets of the Transporter Bridge and its surroundings on both shores.

    You can also participate to guided visits of the renovation site of the bridge.
