“Dot Dot Dash!”

French Transatlantic Cable Station Museum
Ranked #15 of 45 things to do in Orleans
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 May 2013

What a strange and lovely little museum the FTCSM is for the history lover. Very small but the men who curate the space clearly love what it is and why it is there. This is the place to go to learn about all things cable and Morse code. Communication from a bygone time. Before there was internet there was the telegraph. If you are a curioustype it is fun.

We visited on a rainy June day...a great way to spend 90 minutes! The tour was very interesting and provided good information about the history of transatlantic communication.

We enjoyed the tours and the display of equipment. I got a great explanation of the function of the facility and the cable system. This museum is not for children but for teens and older.

Not open all the time, but worth it if you find it open. Very interesting with an excellent docent. Time well spent
