After the visit

Reconstructing the visit through spoken, written or artistic expression helps visitors understand what they have seen.
There are endless possibilities:
- Naming or recalling what one has seen
- Choosing a favorite or least favorite object or place and explaining one’s choice
- Drawing a particular feature, place, or moment that stood out during the visit
- Imagining the castle and the people who lived in it
- Asking visitors to say whether the experience was easy or difficult; asking them to assess their own behavior during the visit.
