The guided dress up tour:

Imagine the château de Gizeux during the Middle Ages or the Renaissance period...  It's not easy specialy when you're between 5 and 12 years old!
To help children discover the château's history, we propose to make the past come alive! Thanks to costumes at their disposal, they slip into the skins of a princess or a knight, who once lived there. 
Once familiarized with their "new life", children discover with more interest the place's history. They experiment with old customs and traditions, they relive the discovery of the Francis 1st gallery and imagine themselves cooking on the ancient stove of the old kitchen...

Lasting : 1 hour
Every day at 3 pm during holidays
Booking advised
