Museum and galleries

Museums are one of the best ways to really discover the historical roots of the Vendee. Some of the exhibitions are dedicated to industrial and folklore revival, such as Faymoreau Mining Centre, or salt museums on the Atlantic coast. These creative museums like to involve their visitors with a unique experience, by bringing history to life. Other places invite visitors to follow in the footsteps of great artists, who fell in love with the Vendee: The Modern and Contemporary art museum in Les Sables d’Olonne, the Charles Milcendeau museum or the Espace “Gaston Chaissac” and are famous representatives of French art museums.

If you are looking for additional information on the Vendee? Just go to the Historial de la Vendee: it is more than just a French revolution museum; it tells the entire story of this part of the western France.

Some other museums could be called Green museums, not only for their location but also the message they are to get across. By striving to inform people to become more conscious of the world around them, its possible limitations, and how their actions could affect it. Authentic visits to discover natural sites and how to protect these wild reserves all add purpose to such occasions.
