Built in the late 15th century by François II, the last Duke of Brittany, and by his daughter, Anne of Brittany, Duchess and twice queen of France, the Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne houses a residential palace with stone limestone façades and refined Renaissance loggias.
It became a royal château and residence of governors from the 16th century. In later years building also served as a prison, barracks and arsenal. Fully restored, it now houses the Nantes History Museum.
The Nantes history museum unfolds through 32 rooms of the ducal residence. The architecture is seen in the context of 850 exhibits and multimedia features in a contemporary staging. The tour is an invitation to immerse yourself in the history of Nantes, capital of the Dukes of Brittany a great Atlantic port from the 17th century, an industrial which city flourished in the 19th and 20th centuries, and is today a cultural and artistic metropolis. A portrait of a city emerges across the great moments of European and world history, from the Edict of Nantes to the great upheavals of the 20th century through the colonial trade and the slave trade.
