  • Visited both the Historial and the Memorial, primarily to see the 2nd.World War exhibition, which we found interesting, seeing it from it's effect on the French people. The building is modern and striking and facilities good, but the cafe menu is limited out of season. We found the Memorial to the Vendee massacres very moving - the commentary to the video presentation is in various languages via headphones and the chapel is worth a visit.
  • Fun interactive museum where you can see the while history of mankind. There is an extra room for kids to play in and room for other exhibitions! 5 euro's to enter and it's worth it.
