This museum has a very impressive collection of old fire arms and uniforms, particularly around Napoleon. You do not get to appreciate much of the chateau though which is a pity. Definitely worth a visit.

A lovely place to visit for a few hours. There are many displays with lots of armoury. I liked the garden as there are fabulous views across the town.

A fantastic display of military equipment, the building is very interesting and everything is extremely well maintained, We were somewhat gobsmacked by the extensive collection. Make the effort to see this, the staff are very helpful and accommodating.

A very interesting chateau in the centre of Salon. There is a museum attached and guided tours at certain times.
