The castle museum
Founded in 1876 by Arthur de la Borderie, a local historian, the museum, housed within the castle, typifies the encyclopedic spirit of the 19th century. Its main theme is the representation of the mediaeval castle but decorative and historical aspects of the town’s architecture are also presented.











St Nicholas’ museum
This former chapel, built in the 15th and 16th centuries as part of the hospital, houses a collection of religious artefacts made by silver- and goldsmiths mostly during the 19th and early 20th centuries.




Rochers-Sevigné Manorhouse
Madame de Sevigné’s Breton home, typifies the traditional layout of the 17th century manorhouse in the region. Inside is an exhibition of objects, furniture and portaits connected with Madame de Sevigné.



The Faucillonnaie museum
is devoted to the rural heritage of the Vitré area. Domestic objects, garments, furniture and paintings are exhibited in different parts of the building.
