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

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, well, Just Wow.

Check out my photos. It says it all.

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!
