You can also have your own coat of arms designed and printed on paper, wood, leather, or plaster.

  • An extensive collection of medieval weapons (replicas) and the opportunity to meet your family's coat of arms, and may send making it. The owner is the craftsman who built himself the whole building. His family runs the place and are very cozy and Nice.

  • Pros: the guy built the castle itself, with weapons and armor of medieval theme. Understand much Heraldry and can give you climb all the information about your family, but also talk about the topic because he understands a lot. Interesting for those who like the theme. I enjoyed the visit. Cons:-Guy when you enter has a huge Board: No photography. -The place is still small, you don't have a lot to see, it's not a castle. It is a small room. The rest of the castle is still in the plans of the owner. -How is not staffed, it's just the owner and your wife, sometimes you run out of tab when it's full. -Some days it does not open-Let's say the attraction is 70% sale of family crests and 30% things to see. I think the price could be more medieval objects. There's a lot that the owner or some friend built, i.e. are not original items as you expect in a museum. -The souvenirs are more expensive than normal

  • Original...exotico
  • Great place to enjoy a huge collection of knives, Pocket knives, swords and medieval weapons; many were used in wars and revolutions. In addition to the entire collection, you can still have a review of your last name and see where they came from your amcetrais. The Museum's castle was built by the bare hands of owner forming your childhood dream. To the entire family works at the Museum and live this history. Each piece in the collection has your story. Worth knowing and you can still order the coat of arms of your family that will be etched and hand-drawn.

  • It's not exactly a "medieval Museum" as the name suggests, and an exhibition of weapons (most of them, including, has nothing to do with the Medieval Era). The owners were very friendly and the local focus are the family crests. I liked what was offered, but I was expecting something totally different.
