This is a perfect place to put a museum. Old castle with space and character. It was nice that the info was presented in English and Spanish as well. We would highly recommend you make this a stop, especially during the Fete des Brodeuses.

We enjoyed the exhibits very much as we have an interest in Breton history. Our child enjoyed relaxing on comfortable furniture watching video exhibits as we perused the cases. Don't miss the famous 'Le Minor' shop just across the road as well.
