  • Wonderful Museum on the history of le Mans and Maine. Musėe modern, spacious and bright. Through the eras by level. Temporary exhibitions are also offered in addition to the presented collections. The entrance is accessible to € 5 for adults (half price on Sunday), free for children, students under 25 years and job seekers.

  • What marks me squared Plantagenet is pretty smart staging of construction, strata of the Sarthe and especially race history. The architecture responds to the works, but also with the Palace (the current Town Hall). Suitable for all, at all ages, for all mobility. A useful and enjoyable time.

  • Since prehistoric times, through Geoffroy said "Plantagenêt", to exhibitions of contemporary artists, you'll know all about the history of the city of le Mans.
