The National Maritime Museum of Toulon has been located since 1981 next to the Arsenal Clock Tower, one of the few historic sites to have survived the Second World War. A true memory of the Toulon arsenal, whose majestic monumental door dating from 1738 it preserves, the museum has a collection of models of ships and galleys. The Toulon Maritime Museum is part of the National Maritime Museum, along with the museums of Paris, Brest, Rochefort and Port-Louis. Its existence is intimately linked to the history of its port and arsenal. It is accessed through the old gate dating from 1738.
