Overview

The French Transatlantic Cable Station Museum was at one point the epicenter of intercontinental connections during 1890-1940. To relay stock-market details, keep a check on the soldiers fighting in World War I and more, a huge cable was attached from Orleans to France. After the Germans invaded in 1940, the service was stopped but started later for a brief period of time. But today, the French Transatlantic Cable Station Museum is one of the most frequented tourist attractions in the city and also an example of the evolution of technology. There are several exhibits showcased here that provide you with detailed history of the French Cable. Check website for further details.
