The gallery is both informative and contains wonderful carriages. I would definitely recommend sparing an hour to visit here during any visit to Versailles.

It's easy to forget this additional attraction just outside the gates of the Palace but do seek it out and enjoy the sight of many carriages and sledges used by the French Royals (and Napoleon)

This is a hidden gem in Versailles. It's right out of the front entrance to the left when facing the street or to your right when facing the palace. The entrance is free and you get to see beautiful royal carriages of all sizes and...More

Visited because we were there and had time, but we'll worth it, would recommend. Doesn't take too long.

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.

This is not a big museum of royal carriages, but still impressive. Extremely elaborate ones for kings, and even pint-sized carriages for baby princes. Descriptions are in English so you get a good idea of the era of kings. it's across the road from Versailles...More

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

Opens at 12.30pm but wow what a wonderful display of coaches. The gold coach - wow. It's around 10 minutes slow walk from the Palace
