Château (Town History Museum)

Château (Town History Museum) Review

At the edge of the ramparts is this 15th-century château, whose great keep and watchtowers command an impressive view of the harbor and coastline. It houses the Musée d'Histoire de la Ville, devoted to the great figures—from the founder of French Canada, Jacques Cartier, to Châteaubriand, "Father of Romanticism"—who have touched local history, and the Galerie Quic-en-Grogne, a museum in a tower, where various episodes and celebrities from St-Malo's past are recalled by way of waxworks.
