Presentation

To coincide with the equestrian events at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, which will be held on the Versailles estate, the Château is devoting a major exhibition to the horse and equestrian civilisation in Europe.
From 2 July to 3 November 2024, the Château de Versailles is presenting the exhibition "Horses in Majesty - At the Heart of a Civilisation". Nearly 300 works highlight the place and uses of the horse in civil and military society, from the 16th to the 20th century, right up to the eve of the First World War, marking the end of horse-drawn civilisation and the relegation of the horse to the realm of leisure pursuits.

The first exhibition of this scale to be dedicated to the horse, the exhibition is divided into thirteen sections and takes visitors through several emblematic areas of the Château: the African rooms, the Grand Appartement du Roi, the Hall of Mirrors, the War and Peace rooms, Madame de Maintenon's flats and those of the Dauphine.
