Come discover Anne of Brittany’s castle

In the heart of Nantes’ medieval district, discover the Château des ducs de Bretagne: an emblematic landmark that was built in the late 15th century by Duke François II and his daughter, Anne of Brittany.

Several itineraries are available to discover this monument and its resolutely contemporary history museum. The sections on the Slave Trade, slavery, and the two World Wars have become international references. Come discover the remarkable architecture and landmark events that make up the history of both the city and the castle: the Edict of Nantes, industrialization (LU, BN), and shipbuilding, to name just a few. 

Discover the rooms of the museum on your own, or with the help of one of our tools to guide you:


A map is available to help you discover the museum (free).


Self-guided visit with a free leaflet, on following themes: the museum in 20 objects, both World Wars in Nantes, the Slave Trade, Anne of Brittany’s castle (free).
