    We had a wonderful family day out here. Grandparents, parents and two, 2 year olds had a fantastic time. The gardens are immaculate. The staff are all happy, engaging and friendly. There is so much to see and do. We were lucky that it was not busy so there were no queues for the rides. Ticket price is good value. It’s a pity there is nothing like it in the UK .

    This attraction is a must-see when visiting. The level of history recorded on the tours is intense. Anything to learn about the people of the time? How history worked out for the good and the bad. Well worth saying take the extra time to stay-a-while.

    An impressive collection of sculptures, beautifully displayed ... well worth the visit. David d'Angers was obviously very prolific as this is just a sample of his work. Beautifully realised pieces

    This tapestry museum has as its 'Jewel in the Crown' the exceptional set of 10 large tapestries by Jean Lurçat - a contemporary artist whose more modern work offsets dramatically the Tapestry of the Apocalyse (which is at the Chateau d'Angers), and puts in the shade most of the other tapestry work in the museum. The Lurçat tapestries are housed in an ancient 'hospital' (adjoining the museum) where nuns ministered to the sick in centuries past: the size of the walls and lighting make for an excellent display. Guide books are available in a number of languages including English, and these go a long way to interpreting the tapestries. When we visited, the place was quiet: it gives the impression of being off the tourist trail, but it is well worth the detour.

    Beautiful gardens and for right in the middle of the city, and being free, it’s gorgeous! A small playground and animals in the middle as well as an amazing array of flowers, trees and plants.

    A huge and stunning tapestry housed in its own purpose-built building adjoining Angers Castle. The tapestry was commissioned in 1375 and took 7 years to make. It is in large sections (though some have been lost through the ages). The many scenes essentially depict the eternal battle between Good and Evil, with you-know-who coming out on top in the end. It is well worth seeing and being amazed at the 14th century workmanship.

    We really enjoyed both the exterior and interior of this impressive cathedral. It is actually a Roman Catholic church built between the 11th and 16th centuries. It is known for its mixture of Romanesque and Gothic architecture, with lots of beautiful stained glass work. The alter is quite unique as well. Marble with gold, very ornate.

    It is very close to the Chateau Angers, so we combined the visit to this area. The many steps lead right to the Maine River. It has a nice promenade (Jean Turc)

    Very enjoyable area.

    I bought the 24 hour pass for Angers and this was included. Some of the art I liked (landscapes and the Flemish art and some of it I didn’t like as much. The building is lovely. Wish my French verb tenses were better as I can read some French but not everything. The history of Angers exhibition was still interesting despite not being able to read it all

    Reputedly the oldest house in Angers, the Maison d'Adam dates to 1491. It is the most famous of the 40 or so timber-framed houses still in place near the Cathedral in Angers city centre. It is most known for its wooden carvings displayed all over the house's exterior -- some of which are a little risque. The carvings can be seen anytime from the street. The interior of the shop is an artisan gallery selling unique local arts and crafts.

    An old church with a great history. A well restored work so far with more to to come. I took advantage of the audio tours which was free. The audiotool was a great help in leading me around and informing me of what went on here. I learned a lot.

    Le Musée d'Ardoise is fascinating. This area of France was rich in slate (ardoise) - so much so that there was once was a law that roofs had to be made of slate. This museum shows you how workers/craftsmen used to change raw slabs of the stone into finished shingles and other items, using coarse tools. They also have a showroom of many different articles made of slate and information about the quarrying that occurred in the area.

    I visited twice because I enjoyed it so much the first time around. Granted, I have a background in geology, so that aspect was of interest. But if you have any interest in the history of the region, ancient craftsmanship, and a live display of how it was done, then I recommend this place highly.

    I visited a few years ago, but checked the website to be sure it's still available for both the museum and the demonstration. It's 7 euros for an adult for the museum and the demonstration. 4 euros for just the museum. Children are 2 euros. But there are discounts. I received a discount as a teacher - as is true for many museums throughout France. (though it is not currently listed as a discount on their website)

    Little train goes from across the road and will show you the sights of the town, and is well worth the 7 Euros it costs and saves walking, especially when it is hot.
