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.


Exposition 2014 : Pêcheries de la Baie du Mont-Saint-Michel : 4000 ans d'histoire et d'adaptation de l'homme à son environnement

La Baie du Mont-Saint-Michel livre encore aujourd’hui une étonnante diversité de pêcheries, en pierre dans sa partie nord, en bois dans sa partie sud, et mobile à l’est dans sa partie estuarienne. Ces installations, dont l’usage pour les plus vieilles est reconnu dans la Baie depuis au moins 4000 ans, ont toutes eu pour fonction de piéger les poissons ou les crustacés à marée descendante.
L’exposition « Pêcheries de la Baie du Mont-Saint-Michel » vous invite du 1er avril au 30 septembre, à découvrir ces différents types de pêcheries et à partir à la rencontre des pêcheurs à pied qui ont su au cours des siècles aménager ces pièges en adaptant sans cesse leurs techniques à l’environnement particulier de la Baie du Mont-Saint-Michel.
