There is so much in this fortress/castle/museum, for all ages, that one can easily spend an enjoyable afternoon - in any kind of weather - walking through rooms, reading informative posters, looking at exhibits, and, in decent weather, exploring the labyrinths in the garden. There is genealogical information, and coats of arms, about ancient families who lived in the area that is now Haute Savoie and Geneva, there is extensive information about the Duchy of Savoy and about Romans and Gallo-Romans, there is an impressive collection of armor and weaponry, there are murals and ancient furniture throughout, and there are windows to peer through and stairs to climb - there is even a prisoner shackled to a bed! No problem at all for kids to be entertained, and there is a price reduction for families. What is particularly impressive is that not so long ago this castle had been reduced to ruins, and the present owners have done an impressive job collecting artifacts and rebuilding it. It is apparently also available for events, so that is probably the way they can maintain it, although it appears to be popular with local school groups. Frankly, if you have ever wondered about Savoy and why there is such a fierce attachment to their history, not to mention why any vehicle sporting a license plate with a 74 suffix drives so fast, this is the place to learn about it. An afternoon well spent.

Great experience. We opted for the escape game visit. A great time shared with family, 8 people with teenagers. Everyone got involved. The welcome was very friendly.
