Dear sir, We would like to thank you for your visit at Château de Montsoreau-Museum of Contemporary Art. We regret that you didn't appreciate the Art collection. Precisely, the museum is about Contemporary Art not Modern Art. Best regards

If you come for the current art exhibit, be ready for the minimum in effort. A wall of mirrors so you can see yourself as art. A air con unit, plugged in and running. So you can feel the art of a chilled room. Others...More

One thing you must know before you go to this chateau is that it is now an art gallery. While we were not really impressed with the art work the views from the chateau of the surrounding area was wonderful.

Don't visit this chateau expecting a fully furnished home. It's a beautiful building and well situated with fine views over the Loire. When we visited it housed an interesting art exhibition. But the rooms are completely bare. Be aware!
