The aparments of Louis XV's daughters

For this 10th European Night of Museums, the Palace of Versailles will be open for a free visit to the most sumptuous apartments in the Palace after those of the sovereign, the Apartments of Mesdames.

Located on the ground floor of the central section of the Palace, they were occupied by Princesses Adelaide and Victoire, the daughters of Louis XV, for twenty years, from 1769 until the French Revolution. These apartments have just been restored and now contain the furniture and objets d’art that used to decorate it: a veritable hidden treasure that has finally emerged from the Palace’s storerooms. The visit will continue to the Grand Apartments and the Hall of Mirrors.
