History Museum Museum
Le Mans’ long history finds a home at Carre Plantagenet, where over 1,000 artifacts tell the city’s story beginning with the first settlement. As you walk down “la carre,” or “the street,” you will see these objects arranged to best offset their significance as part of society, economy, and technological innovation. Models of the local geography will show you how the land has changed through the ages, while temporary exhibits will introduce you to new ideas in historical analysis and even offer a lighter side of Le Mans’ story. Make Carre Plantagenet a part of your Le Mans vacation plans using our Le Mans vacation planner.

  • I recommend a visit to the historic city by a guide from the tourist office which does excellently well. Not to be missed, this square is an architectural marvel of the middle ages very well put in value.

  • אני מצטרף לביקורות החיוביות על המוזיאון הזה ותכניו ורוצה לציין מוצג אחד מאוד משמעותי לדעתי: זוהי הפלקטה של ג"ופרי מאנז'ו שכונה "פלנטג'נט" ע"ש הצמח שהצמיד לכובעו ובכך, קבע בעצם את השם לשושלת המפורסמת של מלכי אנגליה: הפלנטג'נטים שעליהם נמנו בין היתר הנרי השני, ריצרד לב הארי, ג'ון בלי ארץ ועוד. זוהי נגיעה בהיסטוריה מאוד מרגשת לכל מי שמתעניין בהיסטוריה של צרפת ואנגליה.
  • Very interesting Museum. Museum quality. Not to be missed. This has been for a long time of culture and history.
