Visited The Hermione ship and was impressed the work that went into it. The info about it is displayed very well and the ship itself is a fantastic achievement - well done to you all. We really enjoyed it

Better to visit this ship than the Victory at Portsmouth. A living breathing ship, a authentic reconstruction faithful to detail. 12 euro's to visit worth every cent. Very helpful crew who absolutely passionate about their boat. Really good to see things in the flesh as...More

Very interesting visit here. Easy to get parking. Reasonably priced but don't bother with the guided tour. Lots of great information (French and English) and some great pictures of the ship being built. The Hermione crew are available all through the exhibition and will passionately...More

Beautiful replica. What, however, attracted us most are all the shipbuilding works around - making ropes, fittings, carvers, carpenters ... I have seen some of the old boats or their replicas. But here, for the first time, I saw the construction of the ship -...More

The Hermione iis probably the main reason most visitors come to Rochefort, and they won`t be disppointed. There are two "levels" of visit, the cheaper includes the exhibition (some subtitles in English) and the top deck only. The more expensive tour (16 euros) must be...More

Didn't pay to go round the Hermione as a large group had just arrived and we would have had to wait some time for a guided visit. We were on limited time , so just looked from the outside. It was a splendid example of...More

Should still be there, but she does occasionally make courtesy visits elsewhere. Suggest you check the Association's website. Not permitted to post this here, but if you "google" hermione you should be able to find the link.
