Louis XVI, Marie-Antoinette, and the French Revolution. The Royal family at the Tuileries

Musée des Archives Nationales - Hôtel de Soubise, Hôtels de Soubise et de Rohan - 60 rue des Francs Bourgeois - 75003 Paris
From August 30, 2023 to November 6, 2023

The last 1,000 days of the royal family

When the French Revolution forced Louis XVI and his family out of the Palace of Versailles in October 1789, they were forced to live in the Tuileries Palace until the monarchy was abolished in 1792. What then happened during those 1,000 days?
Running until 6 November 2023, this exhibition at the National Archives sheds light on this often-forgotten chapter of history. It offers a glimpse into the daily life of the royal family during this tumultuous period through a selection of unique and valuable documents (such as the King's diary and letters written by Marie-Antoinette), as well as paintings, engravings, and pieces of furniture.

Open Monday to Friday, 10am to 5.30 pm, except on Tuesdays when the museum is closed. Saturday and Sunday, open from 2pm to 7pm.
