The best gallery that i have ever been in my life. Trough this huge room the France histary is narrated by huge paints from 500 B.C. until the 1800 B.C. It is more large than the mirror gallery and according to me it is more beatifull and well made!

this room has a series of huge paintings depicting the expansion of French military power. The signage is good but the key is to use the audio guide. The only downside is that the paintings are so big that you really need to stnad back from them to gain perspecitve and to understand the significance of the scene BUT there are so many people that it is very difficult to be able to have an unobstructed view.

Stunning and mesmerizing. It is part of the palace grandeur which is worth enjoying. The audio guide helps to learn the history about the place.

The gallery is beautiful architecturally. There are paintings along both sides of the gallery of some the most important battles of the time. The paintings are very large and so impressive. They are beautifully painted and I was fascinated.

A must see!

33 famous battles from French history are depicted in impressive pictures. From Clovis to Napoleon, local heroes are celebrated in a captivating manner. If you allow at least one hour for this room, you can really have a French history lesson.

I found La Galerie to be the most interesting part of the audio tour. It gave the most historical facts on the various battles throughout the French history.

After you mind has been rather blown by the Chateau - you move to this Galerie, installed by Louis Phillipe many years after the revolution when the chateau was used more for public good -

it doesn’t have the same gratuitous over the top decor for decor sake - it feels more like an exceptional documentary of the wars of france

The paintings really are magnificent

The story they tell a is awesome (of course all in favour of france, but that is to be expected)

My sons were transfixed - and this was after 90 mins in the chateau and they were ready to go
I think it might be my favourite part - of the whole day - but maybe that is just the reaction my sons had, that made me love it so much

This magnificent gallery feature almost 120 picture of famous battles and heroes from those battles.
The gallery reminded me parts of the Louvre when it comes to its sheer size - over 120 meters long.
The gallery offers an incredible opportunity to take great photos using a wide-angle lens.

These galleries are amazing! The paintings of all French’s military battles from medieval times to 1830 are all massive and each is a masterpiece in its own right! A must see!
