The Nantes History Museum recounts the history of the city in several sequences, through a playful, aesthetic and educational scenography.
For a long time, the city of the Dukes has displayed a medieval character. The Place du Bouffay and its neighboring alleys echo the commercial activities and communities that reigned there. Half-timbered houses, vestiges of 15th and 16th century buildings, but also today's stores, bars and restaurants of all styles: a place of crossings, meetings, outings, purchases or strolls, it is always teeming with a continuous crowd.
