The museum of the Royal Estate of Marly invites the public to discover the intimate residence of Louis XIV. It immerses the visitor in the hushed atmosphere of this unique residence where only a few chosen ones had the privilege of being received.

The museum of the Royal Estate of Marly tells the story of this castle with its atypical architecture, 12 pavilions framing a 13th... the king's of course!

The works reveal the history of this castle and its gardens, with regard to the remains visible in the park, of this "Palais des Eaux", fed by the Seine thanks to the 8th wonder of the world, the Marly machine.

Throughout the tour, you will discover the uses of Marly, the atmosphere of this residence and the entertainment offered to the courtiers. Finally, we will reveal the reasons for the disappearance of this residence, which makes the park of Marly a place of reverie.

To enrich your visit, the tour is marked out by various mediation devices that shed additional light on the objects presented.

At the heart of the tour, visitors are invited to enjoy a unique event: a virtual reality experience. "The Royal Eclipse" immerses visitors in an unusual event. They witness the solar eclipse of 3 May 1715 alongside the king himself. The visitor becomes a privileged guest: a guest at Marly.
