    While the Chateau is pretty and has an interesting history, it felt underwhelming compared to the other chateaus we visited in the valley. Would still make a visit though if you have the time.

    It is rather for kids, still a nice experience for adults too. You surely need to book in advance if you want to see the show. And it worth doing this...I am old and still I cannot explain how they do their tricks!

    The gardens are all super beautiful and well maintained. Definitely just a 5-10 minute activity, but worth stopping by if you have the time. The view over the city is also gorgeous.

    Big beautiful park where you can have a walk, enjoy the trees, or play ping-pong, football or nearly any sport. Very close to the river, it's a place where stress is leaving you

    This museum is very good to discover more about the region. You have several displays and explanations about the Loire Valley, its geological eras, its fauna and flora and its animals. The video you can watch before visiting the museum is very interesting and shows how varied this region is. There are a few hands-on activities for children and when we visited, there were a few families with children who were having a good time. We liked the temporary exhibition about the 5 senses which was very interesting and we had a go at all activities/tests, even if we were adults.

    A special place with modern architecture and a huge vision, a little like Franco's Church near Madrid or the Mussolini style in Italy. You like it or hate it... Beautiful bells. Right sided clergy...

    Previous reviewers have said it all - a different perspective to the chateaux etc and an insight into 'art'.

    This stone bridge that spans the Loire river in Blois is imposing & is a major landmark & transport link. Long and very wide.

    Right in the center of Blois, you will find the place for comics. It is quite small, but quite interesting. Actually, there are often one or two exhibitions. Now, there is an exhibition on the image of the local, but very famous, chocolate brand of Poulain. Friendly staff.
