What is an interpretation centre?
An interpretation centre is a museum that does not have a collection but aims to showcase and explain a site and its riches. This type of museum first appeared in the United States in natural parks and has now become widely established in Europe.
One departure gate for all five sea voyages
L'Archipel aims to encourage you to expand your discoveries by embarking on one of the five maritime voyages offered, without being restricted to the quayside.
L'Archipel will allow everyone, depending on their wishes and interests, to find their way around the site by choosing a common thread.
Based on the model of interpretation trails, each of the five maritime voyages forms a route around the site, marked out with waypoints where explanatory panels and animations can be found.
Within L'Archipel, you will have access to terminals linked to the Maritime Festival’s mobile application and to location maps to help you easily and pleasurably navigate around the port.
Combining the Festival spirit and the sum of knowledge
It’s the whole purpose of this interpretation centre we have named l'Archipel, and which will rely on human mediation and interactivity to arouse your curiosity. The goal is to restore meaning to a visit to the Maritime Festival and make this event a place for transmitting knowledge.
