  • If you have an interest in nature then this is a great way to spend a few hours in Nantes. Not an expensive place to visit, a little away from the hustle and bustle and very quiet and calm in the muse...  more »
  • We had only purchased a Nantes for a day, so we could so inside. For this museum you pull not a whole day out, you can combine with another museum. It's a nice museum, but you're quite fast through it if you're not at all 2 minutes stationary.

  • Classic natural history museum. Good snake vivarium. Also the (temporary) ants exhibition was awesome !
  • Small, but a good museum. Also, it's free on the first Sunday of each month which is a pretty good deal!
  • Wonderful temporary exhibitions.
  • 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.
