About Palace of Versailles

The Palace of Versailles has a rich history starting in the 17th century. It was first a hunting lodge, then a seat of power, and finally, from the 19th century onwards, a museum. Composed of the Palace, the gardens, the Park, the Trianon estate and several buildings in town, the Estate of Versailles is vast.


Containing over 60,000 works of art, the collections housed in the Palace of Versailles span a very broad period. The collections reflect the dual identity of the Palace as both a palace occupied by the kings of France and the royal court; and later, a museum “dedicated to the glories of France,” inaugurated by Louis-Philippe in 1837.
