An interesting area with many original buildings
1/2020
Lots of old buildings of stone and timber frame, old steep cobbled streets. Some of it's looking a bit tired and could do with a bit of a tidy up.

Well worth a visit for anyone interested in history
8/2019
The Carre Plantagenet was a very interesting and well laid out museum, and we were very glad that we visited. If you have any interest in history, it would be well worth you visiting.

Interesting visit
8/2019 • Pariskunnat
Big permanent exposition about the prehistory and the middle ages, however nothing very special or something you haven't already seen somewhere else of you've visited other historical museums before. All descriptions are only in French.

At the time of visit there was a collaboration with Musée Quai Branly for the temporary exposition, which was very interesting (in my opinion).

It was nice to see but there are better museums around for sure.

A wonderful museum
5/2018 • Pariskunnat
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.

Local History
9/2017 • Soolomatka
A small museum detailing the local history of Le Mans and the Plantaganet dynasty that started here. The museum is easy to navigate around and includes a skeleton of a child. There are also several Beaumont family tombstones from a local abbey.

A treasure deserving more attention!
10/2015 • Pariskunnat
This museum is well worth a visit especially at only 2.5 Euros. It carefully explores the traces of man's habitation in the vicinity throughout the ages. There is an English guide pamphlet freely available at the front desk, which greatly helped me understand the exhibits, together with the visual information alongside many of the the artefacts. The building itself is beautiful, affording a stunning view of the Cathedral and the staff are only too happy to assist.

Light airy beautifully designed museum
8/2015 • Perhe
Managed to keep my teenagers interested for nearly 2 hours. Very interesting stuff and presented in the right combination of static displays and animations.
Someone needs to explain the toilet design as it has to be the most intriguing feature!!

A short course on the history of the city
4/2014 • Perhe
This modern, light filled museum provides the visitor with a wide ranging overview of the history of Le Mans from Roman times through the Medieval period. Major construction outside the building makes handicap entry almost impossible for the next several weeks.

Extraordinary enamel portrait of Geoffroy Plantagenet
5/2013 • Kaverit
The enamel effigy of Geoffroy Plantagenet is about 2 m tall, and dates back 800 years. It is one if not THE oldest enamel existing of this size and detail. This museum also houses the treasure of Coeffort, a large silver collection dating from the XIVth century, and a moving and beautifully scultpted Christ on the Cross, 2 m high, from the XIIth century. Visiting the museum, skip through the ground and 1st floor, mainly coins and pre historic and Roman archeology which anyone having travelled in Italy will have seen much more and better, and come straight to the 2nd floor, to marvel at these few really prize unique pièces of medieval art.
