Classé Monument Historique

Created in 1796, the Museum of Fine Arts of Angers is installed in the Barrault house, built at the end of the 15th century, completed in the 18th century to house new functions at the beginning of the 19th century, when the collections were installed , then the city library, now transferred to a new site.

The renovation of the museum was carried out by GMDP ARCHITECTURE within the framework of the French Museums Program Law and covered all of the historic buildings located in the heart of the city on a complex archaeological site.

The restoration, structural consolidation, restructuring and compliance with safety and accessibility standards were complemented by a program of extension of historic buildings by underpinning in the shale and the creation of a new wing . The greatest constraint was to ensure the continuity of the museographic circuit in this vast ensemble of buildings of different periods, structures and levels, while offering – through the museography of Antoine Stinco, architect – complete accessibility to all audiences.
