The current museum of history and archaeology of Vannes is also commonly called Château Gaillard because of its history. It is in fact a former hotel integrated into the ramparts of Vannes, dating from the 15th century which housed the parliament of Brittany.
Over the centuries, the owners succeeded one another, then in the 20th century, the polymathic society of Morbihan took possession of the manor to exhibit a series of archaeological and historical objects.
Today, the building still preserves its old fireplaces, beams dating from the 15th century and old archives.
The museum of history and archaeology of Vannes, installed in Château Gaillard, a listed monument, presents objects from the past of Morbihan. Dating from the Paleolithic era to the Gallo-Roman era, these numerous objects retrace the history of ancient civilizations of the department and the region. The museum then reveals the craziest secrets of Morbihan, such as the history of the megalithic alignments of Carnac or other Neolithic sites in Brittany...
