1. Musée Portuaire
The Dunkirk Port Museum is a maritime and corporate museum, located in a site built in 1868 and formerly a tobacco warehouse, the Bourdon store. It was born in 1992 as an initiative of former dockworkers who began collecting and preserving evidence of their occupation and environment back in the 1970s. It is made up mainly of the traditional tools of the dockers, so it started as a specialist museum and has since been enriched and considerably developed. As a result, the original collection was supplemented by acquisitions of museums and warehouses, mainly the Dunkirk Chamber of Commerce (Images) and the Dunkirk Museum of Fine Arts (Models).
2. Le Sandettié
The Sandettié, sixth of the name, called by association with the bench of Sandettié, is the last French fire boat to have been put into service. Built in 1947 in the forges and projects of the Mediterranean, in Graville Le Havre, under the name of BF 6, it was abandoned in June 1989 during its acquisition by the city of Dunkirk. The last person to have returned to the port is Daniel Manier. He is now part of the Flu collection of the Dunkirk Port Museum alongside the Trois-Mâs Duchess Anne.
