It was fun going under the palace to see the beautiful carriages and period outfits including Marie Antionette's dress.

The Royal Armory is a highlight of the Royal Palace. Seeing the lavish carriages and sleds that were used to transport the royal family gives one a better sense of how challenging travel was before modern roadways. The setting for the museum adds to the...More

For a temporary location that looks awesome. It's not much but well displayed, free and easy to spend half an hour there. Also clean toilets.

We went and saw the Marie Antoinette / Axel Von Fersen exhibition, which included many carriages, though the main carriage exhibition was advertised to be starting soon. What we saw was very interesting but relatively small. It's free though so is certainly worth a visit!
