The interior has been redecorated with period furniture and the various rooms now have the same function they would have filled when Cartier lived here.

Those new to his feats will get the lowdown here on a guided tour, during which you get to see some of the navigation instruments that Cartier used.

Tours are in French only, but there’s an English guidebook and the museum’s film also has an English language option.
