#2 of 12 in Museums in Sarthe
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.

  • Very interesting tour allowing you to revisit a period in the history of France by recalling the links between the Plantagenets and the Crown of England.

  • Museum in the city center. Great archaeological site. The building is beautiful, clear and large. Accessible for people with reduced mobility because has an elevator for access to the different floors. Took me over an hour to see everything. A must see!

  • I've been visiting this Museum in August. There was a temporary exhibition on contemporary art in connection with the Museum's collections. Very nice and very rewarding.

  • 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.
