  • 45 minutes wait for a cocktail and a beer. A lukewarm beer and not the right one. I live in Nantes, it's the last time I go there.  more »
  • This is built on the factory that used to make biscuits. I think it's been modernised but it was still an interesting facade  more »
  • Very interesting and modern art center, I went with my classmates and professor. I was amazed by the idea behind each art piece, made me think a lot about human beings. Merci pour la visit.
  • Quirky art and performance space in a disused biscuit factory a short walk from train station and chateau. Another example of Nantes creativity and imagination.
