  • Our second visit to the Historial de la Vendée museum - especially to see the Osiris Egyptian exhibition - we were not disappointed! Lots of artifacts and information (not much in English though if you don’t speak French) The rest of the museum was very interesting too - with exhibitions about prehistoric times, the Middle Ages and the Vendée Wars Good visits for history buffs, and the Café was good too!
  • Good and interesting museum, but only limited descriptions and explanations in english.
