The University Collections: A Heritage to Discover

The University of Rennes houses one of the most beautiful university collections in France, appreciated by visitors and familiar to both French and international researchers

The University of Rennes houses scientific collections that are remarkable in terms of their quality and the number of objects held (some 1,300,000 specimens), but also and above all for the range of disciplines they represent. These include archaeology, botany, geology, scientific instruments (physics, chemistry, electronics, computing, mathematics), zoology, but also books and rare documents as well as works classified as historical monuments, such as the paintings of Yvonne Jean-Haffen and Mathurin Méheut.

These collections stimulate curiosity and convey emotion. They are ideal for scientific and technical culture activities: exhibitions, conferences, etc., where art and culture often meet science.
