It is the work of a man with an extraordinary destiny: Henri d’Orléans, Duke of Aumale, son of the last King of France, Louis-Philippe. This prince, who is considered to be the greatest collector of his time, made Chantilly the showcase for his countless masterpieces and precious manuscripts.

The second largest collection of antique paintings after the Louvre
In keeping with the Duke of Aumale’s wishes, the layout of the paintings remains unchanged since the 19th century, providing a unique possibility to travel back in time and discover the typical museography of the time. Almost 1,500 manuscripts are kept in the Reading Room, making it the second largest library in France for illuminated manuscripts after the National Library of France.
An exceptionnal panarama of the art of the western garden
With an overall surface area of 115 hectares, the grounds of the Chateau de Chantilly are the result of several creations according to the fashion of each period: the French-style garden created by André Le Nôtre in the 17th century, the Anglo-Chinese Garden in the 18th century and the English Garden in the 19th century.
