"Petit retour dans le temps" Stendy Period of stay : August 2013
Quand on a moins de 25 ans, le donjon est gratuit, alors profitez-en ! Bien que je n'aime pas trop les marches en colimaçon étroites, les salles sont bien aménagées et nous révèlent toute l'histoire de ce donjon, au coeur de l'histoire de Niort depuis 1000 ans. Mention spéciale à la salle contenant les meubles de l'habitat maraîchin du XIXème, et à la vue au sommet à 360° sur le centre-ville de Niort !

"Anniversaire au Donjon" Mme Bureau Period of stay : February 2014
" C'est une expérience très intéressante pour les enfants. L'anniversaire en lui même leurs permet de s'amuser de façon éducative et ludique. De plus, grâce à ce contexte, les enfants sont plus attentifs à l'histoire durant la visite guidée. L'équipe est très accueillante et les petits invités ainsi que les parents sont souvent très emballés de fêter un anniversaire au Donjon. De plus, l'accessibilité pour tous les budgets permet de découvrir des lieux chargés d'histoire. "
