The Musée des Beaux-Arts and the Oratory Chapel form a magnificent cultural center close to the cathedral, the Jardin des Plantes, the Cathedral of the Dukes of Brittany, and other prominent landmarks.
The brand-new edition joins the old structures that make up the brand-new Musée d'arts in Nantes. In terms of architecture, the goal has been to make the museum more democratic and accessible to the city.
The museum is in a residential area and is distinct from the axis formed by the cathedral, the castle, the Lieu Unique cultural center, and the conference center. Additionally built were an auditorium, library, new educational facilities, an archive, and an outdoor sculpture court.
Over 12,000 works from all French and European art movements are represented in its collection, including pieces by Picasso, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Sonia Delaunay, Peter-Paul Rubens, Max Ernst, and Wassily Kadinsky.
The museum underwent extensive renovations from 2011 to 2017 to become a more contemporary, accessible location and to add a 2,000 square meter exhibition space for modern art known as 'the Cube.' It reopened as the Musée d'Arts de Nantes.
