The unique Wolf Museum

Tucked away in Le Cloître Saint-Thégonnec is a unique museum, the only one of its kind in France. Here you’ll find out all about wolves, which still roamed the surrounding countryside just 100 years ago...

This museum tells the story of the wolf

Its habits, its hunting, its disappearance, its place in biodiversity and the issues surrounding its presence in modern France.

The support materials are designed to appeal, being educational and entertaining, arousing the curiosity of any visitor, any age. Find out about wolves here and now, in years gone by and in mythology.

Classic fairytales such as "Little Red Riding Hood" and more modern stories are told in a dedicated room.

Your visit also traces the village streets where the wolf once inspired artists, whose works then enriched and embellished the town. You might end up along the waterways, the moors and boggy hillsides where locals used to catch a glimpse of yellow eyes burning through the night...
