Musee des Blindes Saumur
#1 of 51 Museums in Maine et Loire
Will definitely visit again and Saumur itself is a visually stunning place with amazing restaurants and other museums nearby worthy of more than a one or two day visit.
... is the best display of third reich armour that I have seen; again the vehicles are in a variety of conditions, but excellently presented with an uncommon amount of space to walk around and study the exhibits.
Galerie David d'Angers Angers
#2 of 51 Museums in Maine et Loire
Galerie David d'Angers is a little museum with a lot of big and wonderful statues located in the center of Angers, a town located in Loire Region, in France.
The church fell into ruin but in 1984 it was restored and, daringly, a glass roof was added: this all makes an ideal backdrop for the works of sculptor Pierre-Jean David, known as David of Angers, who lived at the...

Chateau de Brissac Brissac-Quince
#4 of 51 Museums in Maine et Loire
What we got to see in the end was a superb lived-in castle with exquisite furnishings set in vast grounds, and a 90-minute guided tour full of historic facts and anecdotes, which we enjoyed tremendously.
Excellent setting with beautiful gardens and rounded off with wine tasting included and of course we purchased some of the lovely rose.

There are lots of farming and wine processing exhibits on display, plenty of family photographs showing the inhabitants from the early 20th century plus some really well produced videos and shadow movies ( I don't...

The history of French cavalry is well displayed.
Musee Aux Anciens Commerces Doue-la-Fontaine
#9 of 51 Museums in Maine et Loire
We spent a good hour inside the museum fascinated by the wealth of interesting exhibits.
If you immerse yourself into a different culture you may not really get everything as you ve not lived it, it would be the same for a Francophone to visit a museum about Oxo old boxes in the UK etc.
Musee des Beaux-Arts Angers
#10 of 51 Museums in Maine et Loire
I spent around 3 hours in the Museum, the staff is very pleasant and they speak both French and English, apart from the actual museum there's also a beautiful garden where you can lounge for a bit.
The exhibition is well laid out and contains very interesting paintings, sculptures and other artwork you hardly find elsewhere.
Apothicairerie de Bauge Bauge
#11 of 51 Museums in Maine et Loire
The museum is well presented and the brochure in English is sufficient to help you appreciate the exhibits, if your French is as rusty as mine.
The apothecary section can only be accessed by guided tour.
Musee du Champignon Saumur
#12 of 51 Museums in Maine et Loire
The explanatory posters give great detail in English as well as French about all aspects of their science, uses and cultivation, all set out on a circular route.
A self guided tour is provided explaining what is needed to grow the various varieties of mushrooms and the history of mushroom growing.

Chateau de Saumur Saumur
#15 of 51 Museums in Maine et Loire
Well worth a visit and being able to sit and have a coffee or a beer at the nearby cafe/restaurant whilst overlooking the Loire Valley, city and bridges in the glorious sunshine was just great.
Completed a guided tour with a multi talented informative tour guide who made history interesting and at times amusing.

La Cave Vivante du Champignon Le Puy-Notre-Dame

This is more than one expects, as it's so much more than a mushroom museum.
The museum is very old fashioned, but still very interesting.

This includes the history of the caves: mining of limestone blocks, pre-historic habitation, and discovery of fossil ammonites, as well as a display of the history of mushroom growing.
Extremely interesting caves where mushrooms are actively farmed, alongside displays of the history, and explanation of all the details of this fascinating agriculture.

The museum itself was a fascinating collection of internal combustion engines for aircraft, cars, racing cars, boats, ships, tractors, tanks and motorcycles, as well as industrial generators, industrial turbines,...
It is a fabulous working history of the evolution of of the infernal combustion engine from its steam parentage.
