The person carved local stones and recreated local architectural beauties. I really enjoyed the lighting provided to the works. It gives life and a special mood to these beauties. Amazing really!

Wonderfully different- stone carvings some on blocks some directly into the cave walls of the various churches and chateau around the area. They state take an hour to visit but I'd be surprised you would need that long. But still definitely worth going. Combine with visits to the mushroom museum and winery and it's a great day out.
Take a jumper whatever the weather outside as a cool 12 Celsius whatever inside.

We visited this museum and another one (mushroom museum) which have apparently the same owner and you can buy reduced tickets if you visit both. The artist is very talented and used the local limestone ("tuffeau") to create several castles and monuments in details. The models are presented in a troglodytic cave with nice lighting. We got to know other cities and castles along the Loire river that we didn't know.
