Not too many lighthouse museums but this is one of the best
Jul 2019
French lighthouses were heavily influenced by British models and this museum shows how the very brave French keepers adapted to their Atlantic challenge. A fascinating experience.

The fascinating history of lighthouses
Jun 2016 • Couples
Situated in the retired machine room of the Créac’h lighthouse, this museum tells the fascinating history of lighthouses and their technology. Many exhibits use actual equipment from lighthouses. The museum gift shop has a variety of lighthouse souvenirs, for your lighthouse-loving friends. We hired a navette (taxi van) from the ferry landing to the museum, which is at the opposite end of the island. Many visitors rent a bicycle and ride there.

Excellent museum
Sep 2014 • Family
I never much cared about lighthouses prior to visiting Ouessant with my family, but in this island culture you begin to feel a strong rapport with what they represent symbolically and historically and how they figure into the island's landscape. This museum is well organized and puts everything into perspective. It holds excellent historic documents that allow you to understand the development of the lighthouse throughout history and what it means on Ouessant, in particular. I highly recommend a visit even if you can't imagine that lighthouses are all that interesting.
