The Lambinet Museum is an 18th-century private mansion built for a building contractor under Louis XV. In 1929, the city of Versailles accepted a bequest from Mme Nathalie Lambinet to set up a museum, which opened to the public in 1932.
Benefiting from a transfer of the Fine Arts collections from the municipal library and then gradually enriched by purchases, donations and bequests, the Lambinet Museum is a true "collectors' museum".
The museum offers a wide variety of works in different techniques from the Renaissance to the middle of the 20th century: paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings, but also furniture and objets d'art. The art of living in Versailles in the 18th century, the history of the city of Versailles and particularly the French Revolution are the main themes of this museum, which has been awarded the "Musée de France" designation since 2004.

The new museum
After three years of work, the museum will reopen its doors to the public on Saturday 3 December 2022.

We have carried out a museographic reorganisation of the museum, following the restoration of the windows of the façade on the rue Baillet-Reviron side. This reorganisation of the permanent collections will give the Lambinet Museum a new coherence to affirm its identity as a "house of collectors".

The new museum is organised as follows:

Ground floor: We will present the history of the museum and the collections through major donors.
1st floor: You will find art history rooms (sculpture, painting, furniture and objets d'art) and a reconstruction of an 18th century flat.
2nd floor: We will restore the Lambinet Museum to its position as a museum of the history of the city of Versailles from the 17th to the 20th century.
