  • A must visit for the history of Chantilly. I found it a little less interesting than most of my friends who are Equestrians, but all the same, I believe they had a lot more vested interest in it...  more »
  • If you love horses....this is a nice place to visit. Enjoyed the horse show too. Beautiful architecture and stables.  more »
  • A one of kind equestrian museum, with live demonstrations as well as incredible static displays. You can easily spend an entire day between the museum and adjacent chateau and gardens. A short train ride from Paris.
  • Awesome architecture. Very informative museum. Nice pony show.
