Normandy is one of the premiere destinations for non-stop kid-friendly adventures. The sheer number of museums and galleries can be a bit overwhelming, so set your sites on just a few that are sure to be a hit with the kids. Here are just a few selections to explore.
With a simplified version for kids, an exciting new exhibition room and a cinema, history has never been so fun! Children will discover the story behind the 58 scenes of the 11th century relic, then have all their questions about the Battle of Hastings and William the Conqueror answered through the colourful signs, maps and models in the exhibition room and a sixteen-minute film in the cinema.
