Very interesting, but a tour is a must. Very small, but the staff are knowledgeable. Don't know if they can do English tours.

All sorts of printing machines, which for the most part, are in operation. Examples of lithographs, typesetting machines, up to early photocomposition. Unusual things such as the moulds for biscuits (Nantes is famous for Petit Beurre and others). Very forthcoming and friendly museum staff.
