Castle of the Dukes of Brittany is an architectural complex in Nantes, consisting of a wall of the fifteenth century and various buildings built from the fourteenth to the eighteenth century, a historical monument since 1840.
After ducal residence under Duke Francis II and the Duchess Anne, the castle became a royal fortress, the seat of the governor of Nantes and royal prison and barracks from the eighteenth century.

Now owned by the city of Nantes in 1915, the castle was assigned to a museum and tourist use since 1924, especially under the direction of Joseph Stany-Gautier, curator until 1969. From 1990 to 2007, the castle has benefited from a large-scale renovation and has been the site of a new museum devoted to the history of Nantes.
