nice Castle from the outside, the Promenade gives some views of the City adn some Explanation about the surrounding buildings didn't went inside due to a Queue w/o a beginning or and end
The chateau is so beautiful and very well preserved. Learn more about Anne du Bretagne, that is the most important Queen at the place! Very smart lady!! The surroundings of the castle, with the gardens and the water are so nice to sit and enjoy during the summer! Very recommended visit!
From the outside the chateau is pretty impressive with its battlements, moat and grassy banks. Once through the drawbridge one enters a beautiful white medieval courtyard which is spectacular. Inside the chateau itself one may be disappointed with the decor because it is decidedly modern and sterile. The exhibits are interesting (there are room upon room of things to see!... More
Whatever it comes to your mind when somebody says 'castle' this one will fit to that idea. A traditional castle with river, gardens, bridge, big iron doors, etc
- Chateau itself is quite basic, there is nothing really unique of this chateau. - Most of the rooms inside used for the museum. - Located in middle of the city so it is very easy to be accessed. - The view of garden around the chateau is quite impressive.

Excellent exhibit about the French in both world wars. Interesting artifacts and good narrative about the fighting, the people and the aftermath of both wars. Minimal English translations at all displays.
Very well organised for all to visit from small children to older people and those with all sorts of disabilities. Describes the full history of Nantes and information in Braille,and sign language. Lifts available as exhibits on 3 or 4 floors. Very informative and enjoyable.
We go often, live 20 mins away. The castle has been beautifully restored. There is a big exhibition of the history of Nantes inside, to do it properly you need three hours, leaflets in English, some of the commentary as well, but understandable. Run round the ramparts with the kids, if you can keep up! nice restaurant. Book shop limited.
