About the venue
Lachateau-musee-ponts-de-ce, the first fortress of the Ponts-de-Ce situated on a strategic point already used by the Romans, was built around 850 under Charles II (Charles the Bald) grandson of Charlemagne, to resist the invasion of the Normans who went up the Loire to plunder the interior of the country. This castle, not located and probably made of wood, succeeds a feudal stone building. The castle now houses the Museum of Headdresses and Traditions. An unusual museum, it offers visitors the exceptional discovery of a collection of more than 600 headdresses, hats and costumes from Anjou in the French provinces and elsewhere. Also the museum offers many temporary exhibitions of contemporary artists of high quality. Each year, from April to September, the Association of Friends of the Hat Museum presents a temporary exhibition of unique pieces of local heritage and exceptional contemporary creations.
