The Musée du Bord de Mer (“Seaside Museum”) offers a colourful palette of artists
in a coastal atmosphere, and where the seaside way of life presides.
At the entrance to the town, near the Maison Du Tourisme, the Musée du Bord de Mer
will welcome you in a space of 500m². Faithful to the wishes of its legatee, Jean Boissel,
the museum recounts the life of seaside baths and boating along the coast of the Odet.
The permanent exhibition dedicated to the leisure activities of the coastline displays
model ships, beach toys, photos, films and unusual objects, and recounts the history
of regattas of large and small boats on our coasts.
This way of life by the sea weaves the path for an original museum journey, inspired by
the coast, and which invites the whole family to come and dream.
Bénodet has always inspired artists, and the last few seasons have been brightened
up by several temporary exhibitions.
Each year, the Musée Du Bord de Mer showcases painters from here and there,
on the picture rails in its sea-themed aisles.
Local artists will exhibit their canvases on a coastal theme early
From May 2015, the museum will host an exhibition on
«Seaside Fauna and Flora», in partnership with the
‘Peintres Officiels de la Marine’.

Chapel of Perguet
Located alongside the road between Bénodet and Fouesnant, it was the parish church of Bénodet until 1878. Its roman part was built in the XI century.
The enclosure that surrounds the church was an ancient cemetery. Its Calvary, restored in 1989, represents St. Laurent and St. Brigitte, the two saints the church is dedicated to. The statuary, the altar and the windows have been restored and have a high quality polychrome.
The church can be visited from July until 30th of September every day, except tuesday and wednesday, from 10am to 1pm and from 2pm to 6pm.
