  • Beautiful reconstruction and we took advantage of the tablets that small children better follow the visit with the virtual images of the rooms crossings

  • Great museum! Interactive par excellence! Each visitor gets an iPad and is guided through the exhibition. I never had an experience like that. I recommend it to anyone.
  • Excellent historical stop. If you are in Normandy, this is a MUST see!
  • Very good and the interactive iPads are a bonus!
  • Splendid castle visiting experience. Brings history to life in a modern context.
  • Well worth a visit. Guided tours in English
