  • Firstly, how many lived in Nantes, this much all say that the Museum is being renovated for too long. Secondly, the completion of the restoration is transferred annually. So, if you're here just for a couple of weeks or even days, you expect to visit.

  • Indeed it will be 2 years since the Nantes Fine Arts Museum is under construction.. .you have to be honest that art and painting is not within the reach of all to reviews that have been on your site but just take the time to look at some large paintings in this museum to realize progress and the beauty of the technique. Indeed, the buildings are not so young are waiting to see the Museum which I hope should not delay...
