Located on the port, the Musée des Pêcheries is housed in the town's historic fish-drying warehouses, which have been completely refurbished and modernised.
The museum explores five themes over 5000 square metres: sealife, history, fine art, childcare and ethnography. Visitors will discover paintings, ship models, traditional fishing gear, porcelain and even ivory art pieces on five floors.
A room is dedicated to nursing and childcare. Indeed, Fécamp is the birthplace of modern pediatrics, where Doctor Léon Dufour founded the famous Goutte de Lait society, which supplied sterilised milk, food, clothing, and medical advice to the children of impoverished women back in the 19th century.
