Carré Plantagenêt is the archaeological museum of the city. Aptly named, the centers boasts of the prettiest square courtyards. With the intention of telling the story of the city right from the start, they have five sections telling each and every detail of this gorgeous place. Starting from the “start”, the first section is Prehistory, followed by Protohistory, The Gallo period -romaine and The Early Middle Ages to finally conclude with Medieval Maine. Documents, manuscripts, portraits, artworks and artefacts assist in this storytelling. A great place to bring children, you can all explore the museum on your own, or better still, take a guided tour! There are two routes by which you can traverse through this tale. While the shorter one will take you through the main events chronologically, it will save you time but won’t give you the details. It is recommended that you take the longer route which goes through every detail. With archaeological books, scenography and interactive totems en route, it is very entertaining for adults and children alike! While here, you can also check out the documentation center, auditoriums and the activity center, and have a quick bite before moving on to explore more of this rich city.

  • I went to this museum specifically to learn about the Plantagenets. Despite the name "Carré Plantagenet" there is surprisingly little about them. I did enjoy the exhibits on the Roman period in France. Pet peeve: cultural institutions that receive financial support from EU taxpayers should make an effort to provide language support in languages other than French and English.

  • Muséographie au carré pour ce beau musée de centre-ville. L'exposition temporaire des oeuvres de Paul Jacoulet est magnifiquement réussie.Mention spéciale au personnel du musée, très compétent et aux petits soins pour les visiteurs!

  • Super muse avec une consevatrce d'exception qui nous a fait partagé son métier et le musé et ses secrets

  • Nous n avons pas pu le visiter en entier mais à première vue le musée est magnifique et nécessite je pense plusieurs heures ou plusieurs visites pour tout voir!

  • Très bon accueil : je suis venue avec ma classe. Les activités étaient très intéressantes et adaptées à l'âge des élèves. L'exposition est bien agencée et bien expliquée.
