Address Maison du Fier Les Vieux Ports, 17880 Les Portes-en-Ré, France

The Maison du Fier is a museum located in the heart of the nature reserve presenting permanent and temporary exhibitions on the fauna, flora and landscapes of the island.

Installed in a former salt shed, the Maison du Fier is a museographic space dedicated to the natural heritage of the island belonging to the Conservatoire de l’Espace Littoral.
To extend the experience, visitors are invited to discover the nature reserve to learn about the species and plants that live there.
Around 1914, two salt sheds were built on the quays of the old port of Portes-en-Ré to store up to 2,000 tons of salt. Following the progressive abandonment of the marshes, in 1950, one of the two sheds was demolished and the other was converted into a shipbuilding workshop.
It is from 1997, after the purchase of the Conservatoire de l’Espace Littoral, that the old hangar will be transformed into the Maison du Fier. It will open its doors just after the end of the rehabilitation works in 2000.
