Why take advantage?

The Maison de l'algue opens its doors to you! The museum is located in Lanildut, at Europe's 1st seaweed unloading port and a stone's throw from the continent's largest kelp field. Discover one of the region's most emblematic activities through an immersive, interactive tour, archive images and a collection of objects, past and present, used to harvest the precious Laminaria Digitata.

Visitors and long-time residents of the Pays d'Iroise can extend their visit by watching the seaweed harvesters at work and the boats being unloaded in the port of Aber-Ildut.

A free, accessible tour for the whole family!

The new museography was supported by the European Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Fund and the Brittany Region.

Numerous activities are organized throughout the year around seaweed and the marine environment: cooking workshops, harvesting outings, etc.
For further information, please contact us by telephone or on site.

The Maison de l'algue also has a tourist information area and a Finist'mer ticket office for the islands.
