  • If you ever wanted to know about Joan of Arc, then visit here. Relatively new attraction housed in the archbishop's palace behind the Cathedral. You travel through the rooms to see the story of Joan's life told by way of reconstruction of her trial and retrial. Very interesting and relevant to current times using 3D and holograms to bring the story to life. Visitors are drip fed in so that everyone gets a good view. Headsets in other languages are available.
  • Great museum. A video is following you through the museum to relate story. As a result you remember better the story of Jeanne d'arc. Starts every 15 min and last 1.5h
  • Pretty cool. Sort of a museum but more of an interactive tour of the live of Jeanne d'arc. You do need to book ahead as the tours start every half hour.
  • Multimedia presentation done right! Educational, evocative, well worth the effort!
  • Superb. The place is beautiful, do not miss the chapel before leaving. The scenography on Joan of Arc is really well done and accessible to all.
