Well worth a visit. We saw the carriages and they were amazing. Always good to navigate a museum with two kids in tow and for them to be entertained. Highlight of our trip.

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.

Whilst we were there this museum had an exhibition of Carraiges from Versailles which was breath taking, The regular artifacts were also worth a visit with some amazing Paintings .

So much to see, you will need to allow plenty of time. This month (June 2013) there is an extra carriage exhibition from Versailles. It's a great opportunity to see something very unusual and interesting.

Ventured into here i will admit because it was warm! Beautiful place, and interesting range of exhibits. At the moment there is the carriages exhibition from versaille, which is just stunning. A few of the paintings I found hung at levels and angles that picked up light reflection, which was a shame. Very friendly place as well.
