Chateau Grandson

We went to Chateau Grandson ( today. It is about 30 minutes north of Morges. On the way we saw another castle across the valley and we'll have to figure out what it is called.
The highlights of the castle were:
*medieval hall
*artifacts from the stone, bronze, and iron age
*French and Swiss furniture from the 16th and 17th century
*arms and armour from from the last few hundred years
*trap doors and a prison
*Flemish tapestry fromt he 17th century
*old car museum
*torture chamber

The old car museum (early 1900s) was a bit of a weird fit, but was really interesting.
