Musée des Carrosses

The Coach Museum is a museum located in Versailles (Yvelines in France) which has a collection of carriages mainly nineteenth century. It belongs to the public establishment of the Palace, Museum and National Estate of Versailles and housed in the Great Barn.

This museum was created by King Louis-Philippe in 1833 when I decided to turn Versailles into a museum of "all the glories of France." It is installed at Trianon, a small building constructed for this purpose by Charles-Auguste Questel, architect of Versailles civilian buildings.

The collection consists primarily of vehicles nineteenth century sedans and cars gala of the imperial court of Napoleon, the hearse of Louis XVIII, the coach of the coronation of Charles X. The museum has only a few vehicles from the Ancien Regime with the sedan Dauphin Louis de France (1781-1789), sedan chairs and six sleds.
