Grand Trianon - Galerie des Cotelle

For the first time, the seventeen exceptional models in the “Trianon Collection”, now held at the Musée de la Marine, will be presented in the place for which they were originally ordered: the Galerie des Cotelle at the Grand Trianon. Plans, archives, portraits of the sailors who sailed these ships into combat, as well as navy objects (megaphones, swords, rifles, etc.), will give visitors an idea of how each ship was used.

This exhibition is in partnership with the Musée national de la Marine.
