The HistoPad, a new visit tool

Since February 2019, visitors have been witnessing the “Renaissance” of the royal castle of Amboise thanks to the Histopad, a new digital tablet visit medium. The visitor is offered a real immersion in history: he evolves in the middle of missing buildings; witness the changes in the layout of the royal residence over time; surprisingly finds in their place of origin masterpieces now preserved in museums around the world. He finally crosses the path of sovereigns and more modest personalities who have made history.
