Nicely presented contemporary marine history.

Small but quite interesting exhibition. It worth to buy one ticket for both museum and war ship. On the roof there is beautiful restaurant with very nice view to the beach and Marina.

Great selection of arms and sea/land artillery on display. All areas of the museum cover a lot of history, well translated and explained. When you buy a ticket it allows you to enter the Blyskawica ship which has a lot of history about the Polish navy. Worth a visit even for regulars, not only military buffs. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Château des Ducs de Bretagne

The Château des ducs de Bretagne (Castle of the Dukes of Brittany) is a large castle located in Nantes. It served as the centre of the historical province of Brittany until its separation in 1941. It was the residence of the Dukes of Brittany between the 13th and 16th centuries, subsequently becoming the Breton residence of the French Monarchy. Today the castle houses the Nantes History Museum.

The restored edifice now includes the new Nantes History Museum, installed in 32 of the castle rooms. The museum presents more than 850 objects of collection with the aid of multimedia devices. The castle and the museum try to offer a modern vision of the heritage by presenting the past, the present and the future of the city. Night-time illuminations at the castle further reinforce the revival of the site. The 500-metre round walk on the fortified ramparts provides views not just of the castle buildings and courtyards but also of the town.
