The theater of the Golden Cup, a Rochefort institution

Three times a year, the museum presents in its permanent itinerary a selection of documents from the rich archives of the Historic Defense Service in Rochefort

Built at the initiative of a group of administrators, naval officers and merchants anxious to give Rochefort a theater, the theater is inaugurated in 1769. To highlight the 250 years of this institution, a selection of archives brings a different perspective on the history, architecture and role of the Golden Cup Theater.
