Joseph Denais Museum

  • Parking

This cabinet of curiosities is the culmination of a humanist's dream. Joseph Denais, historian and journalist, created this unusual museum in 1905.

The Joseph Denais Museum in Beaufort-en-Anjou (Maine-et-Loire) is considered a rare and unique museum by visitors who appreciate the diversity and breadth of the collections (history, archaeology, antiquities, local ethnography and foreign, fine arts, natural sciences, numismatics, etc.).
Joseph Denais, historian and journalist, opened this place in 1905 “Because a museum is an excellent school and we all have a duty to learn and we all have to learn constantly”.
In this unusual museum, the Egyptian mummy rubs shoulders with a bronze by Camille Claudel, a historical painting rubs shoulders with a XNUMXth century Russian toy, flints rub shoulders with Prussian helmets.
Notice to lovers of cabinets of curiosities, encyclopedic collections and rare places!
