Not a wonderful entrance and it is easy to walk on by but once inside a treasure trove of old printing machinery. Guide speaks a little English but enjoyed jokes about English contributions to the design of presses. The guide gives practical demonstrations on many of the machines and this makes it very clear.

All sorts of printing machines, which for the most part, are in operation. Examples of lithographs, typesetting machines, up to early photocomposition. Unusual things such as the moulds for biscuits (Nantes is famous for Petit Beurre and others). Very forthcoming and friendly museum staff.
