The Chronograph Museum
Discovering the archaeological site of Rezé
Only a few kilometres separate the Le Chronographe museum in Rezé from the hotel where you are staying in Nantes.
This is an opportunity to discover this archaeological interpretation centre, which is dedicated to discovering the past in a fun way.
The museum and its exhibitions
Discover Ratiatum in an immersive experience that is fun for both young and old. Take a trip back to the Gallo-Roman era and experience the daily life of the inhabitants. Like an archaeologist, investigate the work of the researchers to help them move forward.
The adjoining archaeological site
The museum did not set up here by chance. Between the 1st and 3rd centuries, you could see the largest warehouse in the port district. It was thanks to Dubuisson-Aubenay, writer and traveller, that the world discovered the existence of Ratiatum. Scientists then followed one another to discover what was hidden under the site.
Today, a research and development project for the area has been launched. Thousands of students and specialists are on site to further the research.
