This exhibition, open from 10 to 30 May and then in July and August at the Maison du Parc naturel régional Loire-Anjou-Touraine (Loire-Anjou-Touraine Regional Natural Park Centre), offers an interactive journey through the World Heritage sites in the Loire Valley.

Mission Val de Loire is curating this exhibition for the Centre and Pays de la Loire regions which presents the idea of a cultural journey as it applies to the World Heritage of the Loire Valley. Open to everyone, and offering several layers of meaning, it forms part of our ambition to share and raise awareness of the values behind inscription on the World Heritage list.
In a graphic ambiance decorated with emblematic symbols of the Loire landscape, touch screens allow visitors to tailor their trip to their own tastes, exploring the heritage properties and cultural values which led to the Loire Valley achieving World Heritage status in November 2000.

The menu offers five options:
- A quick before and after flyover of the Loire Valley, two centuries apart
- A summary of UNESCO and World Heritage
- And three themed chapters:
   o In the beginning, a river
   o The Loire, one waterway, a variety of environments
   o Heritage and culture in the Loire, bringing together history, and stone, vine and garden crafts.
Designed with a committee of experts, the exhibition draws on ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) to reshape the reading and interpretation of our heritage.
