Nantes urban History Museum
Five centuries of history
In the heart of the medieval quarter, the Château des ducs de Bretagne welcomes the Musée d’Histoire de Nantes.
Its scenography offers a walking tour punctuated with 850 objects from its collection as well as interactive multimedia displays that are aesthetic, fun, and educational. The history of the city is told in a seven-part circuit. In the 32nd and final room, the Nantes-based artist Pierrick Sorin offers his portrait of the city by evoking the particular events of our history.
