This is part of chateau chantilly but has an interesting presentation on history of horses. There also are horses and ponies here and in aft a dressage presentation. It looks like a castle itself.

Just the best place to be a horse all catered for inside and out. Checkout the riding display and the Cheateux to the horse and it's life.

We attended the Spectacle on a Sunday afternoon which was exceptionally well done and very entertaining. The Musee is interesting but it was the show that made the difference for us. Definitely worth the visit and very well done.

The Musee du Cheval is by the Stables, from the XVIIIth century, and is a live museum, because there are horses at the stables and dressage shows. Even if in the small size, the collection, the museography and the place is great.

The best part of this, otherwise, small museum ...are the horses and ponies there! The shetlands were a huge hit with the children. We attended the shows and loved them. The travels of Marco Polo was one of them: Beautiful costumes as well!

This is an amazing place. I did it as a (comfortable) day trip from Paris. There has been a chateau on this site from 1400; the stables, built around 1600 and originally housing 230 horses, now house about 30 horses and a comprehensive horse museum....More

Really enjoyed the visit. Stables are really impressive and well worth a visit even if you’re not really into horses. The dressage show was interesting, but as everyone says all in French. Enjoyed the painting exhibition. Puts all other stables in the shade.
