Musee d'Arts de Nantes, Nantes

4.1
#4 of 17 in Museums in Nantes
The Fine Arts Museum of Nantes, along with 14 other provincial museums, was created, by consular decree on 14 Fructidor in year IX (31 August 1801). Today the museum is one of the largest museums in the region.

The facades, roof and stairs in the building that houses the art collections have been registered as historical monuments since 29 October 1975.

On 18 December 2011 the museum closed its doors for what was initially expected to be two years at most, to carry out extension expansion work. Due to problems associate with the discovery of ground water in the foundations, which required almost four years of additional work, the reopening of the entire building (renamed the "Art Museum of Nantes") was postponed until 23 June 2013.

  • Lovely well laid out galleries. I even enjoyed the early art. My preference is modern and impressionist, of which there was a good collection
  • We went purely for lunch in the cafe. Utterly delicious! The desert (a praline and apricot choux) was delicious. Totally recommend.
  • Fantastic exhibition and beautifully curated! However there is no information in English anywhere, which was a bit disappointing. I even downloaded the app they have and only the titles were in English there, not the text. Other than that I had a great experience.
  • Nice and divers collection, free entrance every fisrt Sunday except Jul-Aug.
  • Amazing museum with surprising collection of Art throughout the countries. Some gorgeous pieces of the early 20th century as for example the small but impressive Kandinski collection. Beautiful architecture of the museum itself. Greatly worth s LONG visit❤️❤️
