Description
The Musée d'Ile-de-France opened in 1973 in the middle of the Domaine de Sceaux, and displays its collections in 4 prestigious settings. The Château du Second Empire displays the museum's collections on the history of Paris from the 17th century to the middle of the 20th century. The Orangery, an art gallery built at the end of the 17th century by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, holds sculptures of the Jardins de l’Epoque by Colbert. The Aurore pavilion, a magnificent garden pavilion from the 17th century, has a cupola painted by Charles Le Brun with dawn as his inspiration. Lastly, the renovated Ecuries de Colbert offers several services: a restaurant, shop, multimedia area and temporary exhibition room. Round off your visit with a stroll around the gardens designed by Le Nôtre.
