Musée-atelier de l’imprimerie de Nantes
Printing museum

This museum bears witness to Nantes’ industrial heritage, which invites visitors to discover the history of former bookmaking trades. The museum is one-of-akind because the machines still function — meaning the past is still alive.

The museum’s presses were also used in several films, like Les Illusions perdues by Xavier Giannoli.
