Overview

Inaugurated in 2001, the museum Manoli has emerged today as one of the privileged art and explore Brittany places . Several hundred works in eight rooms and a large garden reflect the immense talent of the artist.In this place of life and creation still hangs the memory of the sculptor , author of " Cheminée " at the University Pierre et Marie Curie , "Grande voile" at the Montparnasse station or liturgical furniture of the Cathedral of Quimper. Manoli was interested not only recycled materials but also granite, the earthenware and metal which he shoved standards in order to bring out characters, animals and abstract works. The result is amazing . On the green grass , the trees , stand sculptures like sheep to the propellers. Bird takeoffs gold metal, owls born a plow shaped by fire and acrobats who seem to invent perpetual motion take us into the imaginary world of the artist.

To visit this charming museum and garden/orchard we detoured from Sant Malo. I was charmed by the setup and the peacefulness of the location. It is nice to see Manoli's art in its original setting.

I love sculpture but French museums can be very variable and occasionally bizarre but this place is a gem. So many beautiful sculptures, presented in a great garden (some in doors), even some of the apple trees looked like sculptures. I'm sorry to say I'd...More

we came here when staying in Dinard for a couple of days. Apart from the exhibits that are indoors a lot of it is set in a lovely peaceful garden. It is so nice to walk around and see these very unusual sculptures. A lovely...More

my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon wandering around the lovely garden full of very interesting sculptures, although there are a large number of sculptures for such a small space they do not crowd each other out, there are also a few indoor galleries....More

Looking at pictures in the leaflet for this attraction one gets the impression it is in a park like area. We was very disappointed to pay to visit and find it only took 30 minuets to get round it. The sculptures was very good and...More

A wonderful and initimate little museum in the former workshop/atelier of this interesting franco-egyptian sculpturer. The custodian is a friendly japanese woman.
