Exhibition from 21st May to 30th December 2016 at the Musée Dobrée, Nantes.
For the second year in a row, the Musée Dobrée is opening up several of its galleries for a special anthology exhibition: Exploring the collections - Act 2. This show is an invitation to (re)discover the diverse treasures of the departmental museum's collections : ancient and medieval sculptures, Greek pottery, Asian and Egyptian statues, ritual artefacts from Oceania and the Americas, paintings from the 16th to 19th centuries, engravings by Dürer and Schongauer, gold coins, weapons from Antiquity to the Napoleonic era ... and of course the fantastic golden reliquary containing the heart of Anne of Brittany! Over 350 of the museum's most emblematic artefacts will be on display.
A journey through 5000 years of history across 5 continents.
