Musée Thomas Dobrée
Dobrée Museum

The Dobrée Museum is a remarkable heritage site, housing collections that are unique in their richness and diversity.

Following a major restoration project, the museum can finally be seen in all its originality as a unique site built around three buildings: the Dobrée house, a 15th-century manor, and two extensions dating from the 20th and 21st centuries. This unique and eclectic ensemble is made up of multiple collections spanning 500,000 years of history and 5 continents, with 2,400 objects on display, including the reliquary containing Anne de Bretagne’s heart.

In a warm, cozy atmosphere, the new Dobrée Museum offers a wide range of interactive and sensorial tours that illustrate the Département de Loire-Atlantique’s vocation “to arouse curiosity, emotion, and the joy of discovery”.

The buildings are also surrounded by a broad palette of plant-life: in the centre is the museum garden, with its collection of plants inviting onlookers to yet another voyage, a grassy park for children with seats and a play area, as well as a forecourt lined with a collection of rosebushes.

Opening on May 18, 2024

Currently undergoing renovation and extension, the Musée Dobrée  will open its doors on May 18, 2024, on the occasion of Museum Night.

Free admission from May 18 to June 2, 2024

During the works, the museum and gardens are not open to the public.
