An adapted visit to a thousand-year-old castle!

 

A real castle to visit to complete your education in history and art history, this is what the Château de Talmont wishes to offer you.

 

Each year, around 4,000 pupils, teachers and guides come to immerse themselves in the Middle Ages during a half-day or a day at the Château de Talmont thanks to a program of activities designed specifically for them.

 

Each of our educational activities respects the rhythm and level of your students, with the aim of transmitting to them medieval knowledge and know-how, but also a taste for heritage and its preservation.

 

Our mediators are at your disposal as soon as you make your reservation to choose with you the activities best suited to the level of the students, the school program and your class project.
