As others have said, this looks terrific from the outside, but unless you can get a tour, there is genuinely little of interest inside other than a model of the complete chateau. Architecturally speaking, there is very little of interest, and at 8 euro entrance fee, unless you are a real history buff, I'd give it a miss.

Nerac's claim to fame is as birthplace of France's favourite king and here we have a wing of his original chateau. Looks great from the outside but frankly there's not much happening inside. Reminded me of the the type of museum curatorship we had in the sixties - worthy, dusty and best left to the historians...however the good news is you are just across the street from a nice restaurant serving drinks....aaah!

We did in the late afternoon a walk in the medieval city of Nérac from the river towards the Castle area. It used to be a rectangular fortress with four towers, but there french revolution caused a demolition and only one tower remained till today. The castle tour is relatively short but still interesting.

Great museum in the last remaining wing of the Chateau of King Henry IV. Beautiful and with lots of detail over medieval life. A good morning visit.

This wasn't a large attraction, but it was well done with great staff. We did the tour while waiting for our table at the terrific restaurant across the street and were all pleased we'd gone.
