Beneath the Monts d’Arrée, the wolf museum, unique in France, presents this fascinating animal in a light that's very different from legends and fairy stories.
In Saint-Thégonnec, they love wolves. This museum invites you to discover the real wolf and the wolf from fable and legend, both the wolf-devil of old and the one rehabilitated by the novels of Jack London and Rudyard Kipling. The museum paints a very complete picture of the wolf – including its way of life, and how it can be protected, plus how it has been presented in fables and children’s literature through the ages. This is done using stuffed wolves, tools and archives from the 350 volume library. Stories about wolves for and a chance to see them for real in situ in the Domaine de Menez Meur complete the picture. Shivers down your spine already!
