Carriages seem to be collected from everywhere and from any period. It is more a curiosity - mostly lives by children - than a cultural journey through the royal carriages.

Although this is part of the Palace, it was actually free to visit. The carriages were very nice to look at and clearly well maintained and restored. Some of the displays with the horses on their harnesses were impressive.

no cueing, no wait, no entrance fee and a feel of times past. And based on the size of the coaches, I think people in the 1800's were rather small

Really great collection of royal horse drawn carriages that is accessible to see on your visit to Versailles and is a free entrance. Tour groups tend to skip past this.

Walk across the bus park in front of Versailles Palace to the old stable building - amazing display of beautiful horse drawn carriages, very ornate and some weighing more than 2 tons. It's all free!

This was excellent. Lots of coaches to see and entry was free, Cannot fault it. We would have had to pay in London
