The Musée départemental Thomas Dobrée, commonly called musée Dobrée is a museum located in the Centre of Nantes, in France, in the Graslin district, near the Museum of natural history and the cours Cambronne, not far from la Médiathèque Jacques Demy.

By deed passed before notary August 8, 1894, Thomas Dobrée bequeathed Palace and collections in the Department of Loire-Inférieure; the donation provides that the Department may transfer its Museum of Archaeology in the Manor of the key, but requires separate access to the archaeological collections of the Palace Dobrée (this was the case until the closure of the museums). The general Council accepted this donation and decides the future Museum will be called musée Thomas Dobrée. As early as 1896, the archaeological collections are installed.

The Egyptian collection of Nantes, rich more for 500 coins (the last two acquired in June 2012), is the result of donations, deposits and legacy that enrich it for nearly two centuries. She had an eventful history, moving several times and changing assignment over the decades.
