"Archaeology & local history"

Built in the 19th century by the famous Nantes-born collector Thomas Dobrée, this museum has a wonderful collection, which is housed in three different buildings. The neo-Roman Palais Dobrée features ancient manuscripts, etchings (by artists such as Rembrandt and Jacques Callot), alabasters, ceramics, gold-work and a selection of arms and armor from the time of the late eighteenth-century Vendée uprisings. The reliquary containing the heart of Anne de Bretagne as well as that of Calminius (a fine example of thirteenth-century enamelwork) are the main medieval masterpieces on display. The archaeological museum, otherwise known as the Nouveau Musée, retraces the history of the Loire area from prehistoric times to the present day, using material discovered during excavations. Mediterranean antiques from Egypt, Greece and Etruria are on permanent display, while temporary exhibitions are held in the fifteenth-century Manoir de la Touche. For more information please see the website.
