My husband and I spent a morning touring the Versailles exhibit of carriages and sledges. The Musee de Beaux-Arts and Versailles formed a partnership and this exhibit in Arras includes articles and paintings originating from Versailles. I was very impressed with the finery and craftsmanship of the carriages. The exhibit also includes paintings from the same era, and an excellent video at the end of the tour which addresses how the carriages are constructed, and evolved over the years.
We visited Versailles later in the week, after seeing the Arras exhibit, so it was a great find with a fraction of the crowds. We purchased a Versailles Pass at the Arras tourism office which got us access to the exhibition at a discounted price.
