Museum of the Mill in Wissant

Together with the Hôtel de la Plage fishpond, the Moulin Museum forms a landscape marked by an atmosphere of the past.

Entering the courtyard of the Hôtel de la Plage, you will discover the wooden terrace, the preamble to an exhibition retracing the past of Wissant and its surroundings.

In the hotel, photos, objects and paintings will make you discover through history, all the richness of the bay of Wissant and the history of local artisanal fishing.

The Mill itself, with its interior, its machinery made entirely of pine wood and its cast iron wheels, gradually reveals its air perfumed with flour and wax. A 1/10th animated model will allow you to discover the Mill as it was in 1950.
