We found the Memorial to the Vendee massacres very moving - the commentary to the video presentation is in various languages via headphones and the chapel is worth a visit.
Fun interactive museum where you can see the while history of mankind. There is an extra room for kids to play in and room for other exhibitions! 5 euro's to enter and it's worth it.
