Château des ducs de bretagne
Musée d’histoire de Nantes

In the heart of the medieval quarter, the Château des ducs de Bretagne welcomes the Musée d’Histoire de Nantes, whose 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: the history of the castle and of ducal Brittany, the Loire estuary and urban development, the history of port activity and industry, the Second World War and reconstruction, social movements, and the metropolis of today and tomorrow. The portrait of the city that is sketched out here spans the great moments of European and world history, from the Edict of Nantes to the great upheavals of the 20th century, as well as colonial trade and commerce of black slaves. In the 32nd and final room, the artist Pierrick Sorin (1960, Nantes), offers his portrait of the city by evoking the particular events of our history.
