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 in 2015. From May 2015, the museum will host an exhibition on «Seaside Fauna and Flora», in partnership with the ‘Peintres Officiels de la Marine’.
