  • What an experience! If you are interested in glass and Windows you should have been here. The ground floor contains the explanation and details of the Windows of the Cathedral of Chartres. In the basement, there is at present an exhibition ' Lumieres du monde '. More explanation can be found on the site of the museum. It's really the effort!
