Hèbre is a site designed by architect Pierre Louis Faloci to house the Musée d'Art et d'Histoire and the Heritage Department, whose exhibitions offer complementary views of the town's history.

The history of Rochefort, in connection with the arsenal, is evoked by the nearly 5-metre high relief map of Rochefort produced by engineer Touboulic in 1835.
The museum also features a collection of paintings, as well as non-European collections, with a space devoted to contemporary Kanak culture and an exceptional collection of Australian Aboriginal art.
These include an exceptional collection of Australian bark paintings from Arnhem Land, the 2nd largest collection in France after the Musée du Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac.

In a veritable showcase, a space dedicated to Pierre Loti retraces the life of this travel writer, from his childhood "little museum" to his costumes, his career as a sailor and his taste for social occasions.
This chronological tour is combined with a 3D virtual visit of this "world house", accompanied by a guide who recounts the history of its decor and the parties it hosted.
The result is total immersion in a truly astonishing atmosphere.

Opening period

From 01/02 to 31/12
Opening hours on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 10 am and 12.30 pm and between 2 pm and 6 pm.
Closed exceptionally on Easter Monday, Whit Monday, May 1st and December 25th.
