I've never seen anything quite like this in my life. An outstanding collection of carriages, something I wouldn't usually be interested in. This collection of Royal coaches was just phenomenal, and this museum is ABSOLUTELY worth a visit. It's free, it's a hidden gem, and,...More

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

The Galerie is a must see when visiting Versailles. The Galerie is not big, but gives insight in the wealth of the royals. Impressive.
