A veritable architectural gem, the Domaine de Chantilly is the work of a man with an exceptional destiny : Henri of Orléans, duc d’Aumale and son of Louis-Philippe, last King of France.
To make your visit to Domaine de Chantilly easy, the site is equipped with digital, interactive, fun tools for children aged 3 and over !
Thanks to the measures taken by the Duc d’Aumale in his will, Chantilly remains, over a century later, a rich, preserved showcase of 19th century charm, like the Musée Condé, at the heart of the château, which has the second largest collection of old paintings after the Louvre with works by Raphaël, Ingres and Delacroix. A tour of the superb Grands Appartements (State Apartments) is the opportunity to discover the pomp and splendour of the nobility of the Ancien Régime.
