Just before Gien, the Château of Saint-Brisson-sur-Loire is a family-friendly destination offering fun activities all year round. At the Château of Blois, children can pick up a games booklet at the entrance and discover the château and Fine Arts Museum through a series of puzzles. There is even a gift awaiting them! Similarly, at the Château of Chambord, the Cassandra the Salamander adventure booklet will lead them to the key places in the château through a series of puzzles, with a prize at the end of the day!

Many châteaux have also set up specially designed family trails, such as at the Royal Château of Amboise and the Royal Fortress of Chinon, while at the Château of Cheverny, Tintin and his friends are awaiting children in the permanent exhibition that retraces their adventures.

For even more fun, some châteaux invite children to dress up in period costumes, such as the Château of Sully-sur-Loire, which offers a range of activities for young visitors, and the Château of Meung-sur-Loire.
