Musée d'Art et d'Histoire

Cholet | Modern and Contemporary Art - Fine Arts - History
The Museum of art and history of the town of Cholet presents to the public an art gallery and a museum space for the regional history of the Mauges and the Vendée.

In 1977, the town of Cholet decides to create a history museum, and then in 1979 a Museum of art recognized by the Ministry of Culture. The two places merged in 1993 in a new building, the present Museum of art and history.

The history gallery tells essentially the Vendee wars which, from 1793 to 1796, opposed the Catholic and Royal armies to the Republican forces, in the region of the Mauges and the Vendée, including the battle of Cholet and the Virée de Galerne.
