Museums in Chenonceaux
The Ladies Gallery
(5)
The Ladies Gallery is a wax museum inside the enclosure of Chenonceau Castle. Unfortuantely the ticket for the castle doesn't include entry to the museum, that's something you have to pay extra for. It is an interesting museum that depicts scenes from the era of Catherine de Medicis, when she lived in the castle. The figures and costumes are very well made and you can see scenes such as dances, prayers and even a hunter with his prey. I liked it a lot.

beautiful garden on a hilltop The Chateau de Chenonceau gardens are made up of a number of individual gardens, the main two being those of Catherine de Medicis and Diane de Poitiers. There is also a maize, a green garden and a vegetable garden to see. Chateau de Chenonceau was given to his mistress, Diane de Poitiers, by Henry II but when he died his wife Catherine de Medici forced her out. Diane's garden was created on the right hand side of the castle and when she took over the castle Catherine created her garden on the left hand side!
