Can I discover the history of the LU factory at Le Lieu Unique ?

There is a small section in the LU Tower that tells the story of the factory but we advise you to go to the Musée d'histoire de Nantes, located in the Château des ducs de Bretagne. It offers an entire sequence dedicated to the city's industrial era, with a focus on the Lefèvre-Utile factory.
