CHATEAU DES DUCS DE BRETAGNE - MUSEE D'HISTOIRE DE NANTES

The last castle on the banks of the Loire before the ocean, this monument shows the architectural refinement of the court of Brittany. A rare fact, it is freely accessible, from the moat to the ramparts.

Presentation of: CHATEAU DES DUCS DE BRETAGNE - MUSEE D'HISTOIRE DE NANTES

The Museum of the History of Nantes, with its resolutely contemporary scenography, tells the story of the city: from ducal Brittany to today's metropolis.
The scenography allows you to approach more than 850 objects in the collection in a playful, aesthetic and educational way.
Throughout the year, exhibitions punctuate the life of the castle.
