When you read the history of this Chateau, you realize that it played a very important part in the lives of the Kings, Queens and Emperors. This being the case I thought I had better drop by. I recall on departing the building, "That was a long way to come to see a few nice tables and chairs and a... More

I have been coming to Compiegne Castle where the Musees et Domain Nationaux de Compienge is based. It has been reviewed more fully than I can here but I would like everyone to know that no only is it an interesting place to visit, it is set in the most beautiful grounds where children and their parents can walk, or...

Check your audio guide at the desk as the attendant gave us one in English and the other in French by mistake and we had to hike back by the time we discovered it. The Museum of the Second Empire and the Transportation Museum are... More

Visinting the Napoleonic palace has been really nice. Prices were reasonable, the audioguide was very good and the place itself impressive. A good possibility to imagine how life in a 19th century royal palace looked like. Also, the staff were friendly and helpful. However, be careful about the other museums mentioned on the website. These are only open quite irregularly.... More
