The treasures of the Versailles Library

Did you know that the Treaty of Paris, which consecrated American Independence was secretly negotiated in 1783 in the "Hôtel des Affaires Etrangères et de la Marine", now the Central Library of Versailles, located opposite Le Grand Contrôle? And that the name of our road, Rue de l'Indépendance Américaine, pays homage to the French involvement in this?

Explore the Central Library, the second wonder of Versailles, with the Chief Conservator, who will reveal to you some of its exceptional collections of works. You’ll have the privilege of discovering documents from George Washington about American Independence, as well as the personal work of Queen Marie-Antoinette. At the end of your visit, enjoy a stroll through the Foreign Affairs Gallery.
