    Visit to the Museum, located in the heart of the city centre of le Mans. It traces the history of the city and the discoveries made. The Museum is free for the under 26 years old.

    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.

    I'm joining the positive reviews about the Museum and its contents and specify one showpiece a lot I think: this is the ג"ופרי of Anjou's falcata dubbed" Plantagenet "plant that attach to the hat and thus, in fact the name for the famous dynasty of the Kings of England: plantg which included, among others, Henry II, Richard noticed Harry John without land and more. This is the very exciting history for anyone interested in the history of France and England.
