European Heritage Days 2021, planned on September 18 and 19, 2021, are an irresistible event for the History of France lovers.  This year, cultural venues gather around the following theme: Heritage for all. It was all it took for the Palace of Versailles to unveil a playful and attractive program.

After a previous edition focusing on comics, the Palace of Versailles offers a new theme for the 38th European Heritage Days. On September 18 and 19, 2021, the Sun King's house switches to "Imperial" mode with a special tour focusing on the Empire and Napoleon I.

For the weekend, discover the Aile du Midi thanks to guides taking you on a tour of the historic galleries, the Musée de l'Histoire de France presenting an epic national tale, especially to the glory of the Empire. Set within the palace, the museum has been created by Louis-Philippe in 1837 and displays the largest collection of art dedicated to the Napoleon era.

At the same time as the Musical Fountains Shows and the Night Fountains Shows - still charged - the estate welcomes you in the estate, from the Trianon to the King's Chamber.

After the tour, you can enjoy the Horse-carriage gallery to discover the wonderful manège designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart and the collection of carriages of the Palace of Versailles.
