A castle labeled Museum of France...

Symbol of the city of Saumur it dominates, the castle is an old fortress transformed into a palace by the Dukes of Anjou (XIV and XV century), including King René. It then becomes the residence of the governors of the city, prison, then deposit of arms and ammunition. In 1906, the castle was bought by the City to house the municipal museum, now labeled Museum of France. A rich collection of decorative arts currently occupies the first floor of the North and East wings. Part of the horse collection, gathering objects from antiquity to the early twentieth century, is exposed in the former abbey. The gardens of the castle offer an exceptional panorama on the Loire and the city. In summer, entertainment is offered for the whole family.
