  • Apart from the castle of the Dukes, who talks about everything except the real history of Britain, it is the only museum where I am not bored. Here the place is given to the minerals, as to animals, fossils etc... Very nice, with a small side not dated desagerable.

  • Very nice, pleasant to visit (1 h visit) although sometimes a little "old" stuffed animals. However I recommend to people who love the natural sciences.

  • For 4 euros (free for children under the age of 18), the collections are important, well presented, explanatory panels describe very well the minerals and the vivarium animals. I went with my Visual handicapped son, the hostess is totally dedicated to the comfort of my child, making him touch minerals, leaving a squirrel, a turtle, a hedgehog, and others, of their location so that my son can touch them, they allowed that he "explores" the skeleton of a whale and an elephant. In short they did everything to make it live a unique experience. This made him deeply happy! The vivarium was unfortunately in rehabilitation, but that shouldn't last long and you can see snakes and other "lizards". There was a (very beautiful) photo exhibition. In conclusion, this Museum, even though it cannot compete with that of Paris, is well worth moving! Go ahead!

  • Beautiful and full of amazing historic ornaments and accessories. You can learn a lot about the history of France and Nantes, moreover with the audioguides. But it's not so representative of the old castell indoor, I mean, there is no old beds or own historical atmosphere of the place, like to be able to imagine how did people live there; but is one of the best historical places to visit near of Loirs River
  • Cool place for kids and adults. Liked the ant exhibition.
  • An interesting place if you want to take your kids. The Museum has a lot of success at the moment with the live shows of the type the ants. It isn't very big so take your time with temporary exhibitions. There are many things to learn.

  • A very nice Museum that is quickly in pretty shortly. The building itself is beautiful and the upstairs Gallery is really very beautiful! Entry costs a few euros, it would be a shame to Miss!
