The European Royal Residences Association, including the Palace of Versailles and in partnership with Google Cultural Institute, is holding a virtual exhibition titled "A Place at the Royal Table" as part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage.
The organ of the Royal Chapel sits on the gallery above the altar in a splendid array of gilding and sculpted decoration. Its fascinating history, which began in 1679 long before the construction of the final chapel, continues today thanks to the skilled hands of those who play and maintain it.
Within the framwork of its artistic, educational, and cultural missions, the Palace of Versailles is developing its educational actions, as it aims to welcome the largest possible audience and assure acess to culture for everyone.
In order to enhance conditions for visitors and preserve our heritage, major work on fire safety standards, utility network renovation and air treatment improvement began in January 2016 in the four rooms of the Queen’s State Apartment.
