Un museu flotant
The Mediterranean’s only floating museum dedicated to traditional fishing vessels

Floating Museum

La Gacela and the Estrella Polar, two wooden fishing boats built in the second half of the 20th century, form the extension into the water of the Fishing Museum in Palamós. Today, they are the only, floating and visitable wooden boats, with these characteristics across the whole Mediterranean.

The Boats

The boats form part of our heritage, the coastal landscape and our culture. They also express a way of life.
