I had wanted to visit the Carre Plantagenet after seeing the fantastic enamelled plaque of Geoffrey d'Anjou - the first of the Plantagenets, on a BBC4 documentary. Seeing this was a highlight of the visit for me, but the museum offered so much more! We were given an explanatory leaflet in English, as well as a more detailed English guide to the exhibits to borrow. We found the museum very interesting, with various styles of presentation: short films, interactive exhibits, as well as short visual demonstrations of various historical activities eg making a slate bracelet. The museum traces the history of Le Mans through various historical periods with many wonderful exhibits. Highly recommended.
