Château de Castelnaud - Musée de la Guerre au Moyen Age
Built on a rocky outcrop, the castle offers a splendid panorama on the Dordogne valley. Historic Building, it houses the Medieval Warfare Museum since 1985 with a rich collection of more of 250 pieces. The sober design highlights this vast collection (polearms, swords, artillery pieces, crossbows, armours...) and provides detailed explanations on the manufacture and use of the arms and armour.
The visit is dotted with signposts, multimedia, interactive terminals and models that help you to understand the evolution of the fortification and the techniques of war.
Outside, the life-size reconstructed war machines (perrière, trebuchet, bombard…) are installed on the bastion as during a siege.
