Versailles in January

I'll be in Paris for 5 days this January. I don't enjoy spending endless hours in museums but would like to see Versailles.

1. Does anyone have experience with how long the lines are in January?

2. If I spend 1/2 day in Versailles, can someone recommend what sights would make sense the rest of the day?

You could consider... returning to Paris via one of the 2 other different train lines than you arrived with which departs from one of the 2 other stations in Versailles you arrived in and see something in that train line's arrival area. The 3 arrival areas back in Paris are north of the river, along the river and south of the river.

You could return to Paris via the Versailles-Chantiers station and be back in 11 minutes at the base of the Paris-Montparnasse Tower for a ride up the elevator for a view of the city or walk over to the Luxembourg Gardens after stopping here at this corner first for a happy hour pint of beer at a pub, or a starbucks coffee or a brasserie cake: https://flic.kr/s/aHskn4zCZz
