The rooms of the Louis XII Wing have been converted into the Museum des Beaux Arts. Some of the fine mantels remain and there is some appropriate ancient furniture. There is no catalog or written guide and unless you are an art expert you may not be able to identify much. There may also be another fee (but I would not go if there is). There are some nice Virgin and child pictures and many of royalty. We found the ost interesting to be a large Limoges enamel, a Beauvais (?) tapestry of Blois and a portrait of a Medici female (?). As stated consider missing this although the rooms are nicely done.
