Museum
Musée d’arts de Nantes
A collection of over 12,000 pieces from primitive to modern art.

Wide panorama of the history of art from the 13th to the 21st century.

Located between the Cathedral and Jardin des plantes, the Musée d’Arts de Nantes is a renowned cultural institution in the West of France. After major expansion and renovation works, the museum reopened in 2017 and became a place where one would walk and contemplate spaces that were now entirely flooded with natural light. It is home to collections that span from the 13th century to the present, and features temporary exhibitions.

Each of the major artistic periods are present, showcasing masterpieces by internationally renowned artists: de La Tour, Courbet, Delacroix, Monet, Picasso, Kandinsky, Soulages, and Kapoor, to name a few.

The museum is also exceptional for its original scenography, which surprises visitors as they move through the galleries through the subtle dialogue it creates between periods.
