This is probably aimed more at children but we four adults enjoyed ourselves there - there are riddles to solve, dressing up clothes, activities like firing a crossbow, and a film (not great quality) showing some of the movies that the Citadel has appeared in....More

We went to this museum having been told by a tourist information person that it was a horse museum (and it hence appealed to my horse-mad daughter) - only to realise when we got in that it was about chivalry not chevallerie... Nonetheless, we enjoyed...More

Fun and interactive museum, very cheap (6 Euros per person), small and based in a real Medieval house which belonged to a knight. You can use the bow and arrows and play other Medieval games. You can also watch a film (in French) on life...More

This is not a museum! It is more of a shop. Items displayed are not antiques, it's all new stuff (copies of antiques) for sale.

A worthwhile visit if not pressed for time! Quaint and small but if you have done your medieval historical research this venue is worth the effort if passing by.

I love Middle Age history but I have not been very happy with this museum as it looked very touristy and not much informative. But maybe my expectations were just to high as the Cittadelle is just awesome, mainly at night.

The only nice thing is the interactive crossbow shooting. The rest is waste of time and money. Nothing interesting there.
