What to see at the castle of Angers ?

A place not to be missed

Architecture, textile, gardens, biodiversity, archaeology, prisoners' graffiti... The castle of Angers is a monument impossible to circumvent which lends itself to all the ludic explorations.

To learn the knight's code of conduct, meet fantastic or microscopic beasts, weave, explore the dungeons, discover the secrets of the builders or just takea breath of fresh air, just cross the drawbridge!

Playful spaces in the royal dwelling


All year long, you can visit 2 rooms dedicated to the evolution of the castle with large models and videos.


The castle presents two temporary exhibitions per year in the 6 rooms of the royal dwelling. Some of them are reprogrammed at regular intervals.

This is the case of the interpretation tour The Apocalypse as if you were there, a playful space to understand the tapestry of the Apocalypse, and the exhibition The Return of the King which evokes through costumes and objects the daily life of the dukes and duchesses.
