We really went for a nice Château visit and were not expecting all the rooms to be filled with art exhibits. Well not all. Some rooms are dedicated to furniture of the time however it is all squashed into one or two rooms. There is a very small armoury room which is good. The rest is art and not very... More

It's funny, this very, very old building just feels unfinished. Like they moved out in the middle ages in a hurry and the new museum owners just haven't really gotten around to making it visitor friendly. You aren't really sure what there is to look at, if you've seen it all, what it was like? The building was obviously very... More

Excellent castle! Went for a couple of hours with my gf and her mum. Particularly liked the way the castle is used as a museum to exhibit the great history, art, aquatic life and other great things that Annecy has to offer. Definitely worth a visit whether it is too hot outside or on a rainy day!

Interesting for those who are interested in medieval castles. Stark interior, limited furnisture (like most French cacstles after the Revolution.On the day I went, there were a few exhibitions by the local cultural society. Good view of the roofs of Annecy.

The chateau museum had an art exhibition, which wasn't my kind of art. The chateau itself is quite interesting, but I have been to many better ones in the Loire. There are some lovely paintings and some old furniture in the permanent part of the exhibition, which were much more interesting. And there is a separate museum about the Lac... More

The museum, it should be firmly noted, has nothing to do with the castle. I had read this in several places, along with comments, along with others that claim the only reason to visit the castle is for its views. I must confess that the views from the castle, especially towards the old town and the lake, are limited, at... More

Interesting pieces of art here. Take some time to enjoy this visit. Also, what caught my attention was some pictures of mermaids and mermaid bones, discovered by the lake. Part of the story is true, part of it is fiction, but very interesting anyway.

A very interesting Chateaux with great exhibitions and interesting architecture. I did reads few TripAdvior reviews after our visit but was quite surprised because I didn't have the negative experiences as listed. I did not expect a furnished castle because the literature clearly states that after a time of disrepair the building was made a museum in the 1950s. It... More
