Musée Naval Maillé Brézé
A war ship, now a floating naval museum

Unique warship which is now classed a historic monument.

Historical monument since 1991, the Maillé-Brezé is the first naval museum afloat in France. It participates in the enhancement of a heritage that might otherwise be forgotten.

Jewel of the French Navy, the Maillé-Brézé is one of a series of 18 destroyer escort, Surcouf type, built in the 1950′.

With a length of 132.65 meters, a width of 12.70 meters and a draft of 5.80 meters, its moving at full load is 3 900 tons. Served by a crew of 277 men including 17 officers and 100 petty officers, its 63 000 horsepower allowed it to reach the speed of 33 knots with an action range of 4 100 nautical (or 6 600 km).

Nantes is transforming

Nantes is changing to become an even more ecological, inclusive, and dynamic city. To do this, new public works will reinforce our already existing ecofriendly modes of transport: new tram lines, green zones for pedestrians and cyclists, and more. From 2024, these major urban projects will disrupt traffic around Les Machines de l’Île and Parc des Chantiers, with the Pont Anne-de-Bretagne bridge closed off to cars (the bridge will remain accessible to pedestrians and cyclists). Solutions will be offered throughout construction to make it easier for everyone to get around, like: increased frequency of several public transport lines, more Naolib bike-share bicycles, and more parking spots in park-and-ride lots.
