The original construction built in the 11th century was to provide the poor with a chapel and a burial cemetery. In the 13th century it was transformed to the Abbey Toussaint by the disciples of Saint Augustin. Unfortunately, after the revolution the parish was confiscated by the army and it fell into ruins. The abbey was accidentally discovered in the 19th century and the initial plan was to turn it into an open air museum for the city. However the chief architect for Historic Monuments Pierre Prunet decided to house the sculptures of David d'Angers in this place.

In an attempt to use the natural light to highlight the grand sculptures, was formulated the idea of the contemporary glass roof which is a major tourist attraction. Today the gallery showcases:

  • The towering sculptures by the artist.
  • Other collections by the artist such as medals, drawing etc.
  • The original plaster carcasses for the bronze or marble statues.

  • Carry valid ID proof to avail concession.
  • Parties can be organized at the gallery.

  • Concession: € 3
