Déçu du fait que je m'attendais à davantage d'histoire sur le lieux lui-même. Pas ou peu d'informations et de documents sur le château lui-même et son évolution à travers l'histoire, et une mise en valeur vraiment limitée des grands faits et personnages de l'histoire à avoir vécu au chateau. En revanche le musée est très complet et intéressant. Prévoir au moins trois heures pour tout voir sans se presser.
