The Chateau de Chantilly is more of an art museum than a furnished chateau, the 13? admission fee only allowed a visit to the Musee Conde in the Grand Chateau, not the grand apartments in the petit chateau. If you buy a Domain Pass or a Show Pass the grand apartments are included or we could have paid an extra 3? to go on a tour of the grand apartments. I passed on seeing those as I knew we would be visiting several more chateaux over the next few days. I thought the admission was a little high for what you actually got to see, certainly compared to the lavishly furnished Fontainebleau or the well presented historic Vaux le Vicomte, perhaps we should have visited the grand apartments.

The Domain and Show passes also include a visit to the stables and also either an equestrian demonstration or an equestrian show. We arrived too late in the day for that part of the chateau visit, I think that might be a highlight for visitors.

We visited on a Monday, the chateau is closed on Tuesday otherwise we probably would have deferred our visit to Tuesday when we had more time.
