1000 years of history and craftsmanship of today

Outside and inside...

Outside, the house of Adam, is a house that presents 1000 years of history, architectural testimony of medieval heritage. Angers still has about forty half-timbered houses, but this one, by the complexity of its structure and the historical elements that adorn its facade is one of the most remarkable.
You will spend some time, with your nose in the air, discovering the sculptures, the sketches, and dreaming! Since 1491, this house has seen a lot!
Inside, the magic of the place continues, of course, and offers a magical decor to the House of the craftsmen. This complex, created more recently, in 1992, brings together eighty art craftsmen who present a unique range of know-how. You will see thousands of objects competing of creativity, and, all, of very high qualitative level.

Here, we are no longer really in the unusual... we are in the incredible! Not to be missed!

C'est au travers de magnifiques documents photographiques, souvent inédits, que Roland Degouy s'attache à retracer la vie locale d'Angers de la fin du siècle dernier jusqu'à la première partie du XXe siècle. Les différents aspects économiques, culturels et sociaux sont explorés et illustrés au fil des pages de ce recueil avec parfois beaucoup de nostalgie... Un rappel du passé pour les anciens et une source de renseignements inestimable pour les plus jeunes générations !
