I went the 1st time with the county council for free, I liked it so much, that I took my daughter and my grandchildren during the All Saints holidays (12 years old, 10 years old and 6 years old) I admired absolutely everything, even the bouquets made of fresh flowers, the Genie's painting studio; the hologram of L da Vinci talking with a noble traveler, all the inventions represented with exceptional models! The gardens ! And the store! I'm sure I'll go back even alone, for the joy of enjoying this genius again!

The chateau provides a self guide for you so the entry tickets were the way to go - less expensive than a tour and a tour is not required. you go at your own pace. We went early in the morning when it opened and there were no crowds


The visit was excellent and good value for money too. No doubt, GetYour Guide provides very good services.

Fascinating. So glad we went there. The machines were amazing and the garden was beautiful.
