YOUR JOURNEY

Visit before opening hours: Skip the lines and experience this remarkable place in tranquility.  

Your expert guide will tell the tale of the Garde-Meuble de la Couronne – the King’s furniture repository – and the superintendents charged with its care.

Learn about the renovation, a never-before-seen collaboration between some of France’s top cultural institutions and interior design duo par excellence, interior decorators Joseph Achkar and Michel Charrière.

Discover the furniture collection, including a desk of “national treasure” status by Jean-Henri Riesener, the 18th century’s most famous cabinet maker.

Enjoy a Champagne breakfast at Café La Perouse, the elegant on-site restaurant named for the site’s link with the grand era of naval exploration.
