Deep in the hedged farmland of Mayenne, at La Frénouse in the commune of Cossé-le-Vivien, there is an astonishing, truly unusual place!

Visit this incredible museum to discover the mysterious world of the painter and architect Robert Tatin. Stroll down the Walk of the Greats (Allée des Géants), where statues of people like Charlemagne, Vercingetorix, Joan of Arc, Jules Verne, Toulouse Lautrec and Pablo Picasso rub shoulders with each other. Nineteen giant statues illustrate different periods in the life of the artist. Continue your exploration of the place with a visit to the Dragon, Robert Tatin's house, which remains in its original state, and the Meditation Garden. It took Robert Tatin and his wife Lise no fewer than twenty-one years to create this imaginary world inhabited by a multitude of sculptures of famous figures!

Works by contemporary artists are shown regularly in the hall used for temporary exhibitions.
