Musée des Antiquités nationales Musée des Antiquités nationales

The Château de St-Germain, dates from the 16th and 17th centuries, although a royal palace had existed here since the 12th century. Louis XIV was born here, and it was here that his father, Louis XIII, died. Until 1682, when the court moved to Versailles, it remained the country's foremost royal residence outside of Paris. Since 1867, the château has housed the impressive Musée des Antiquités Nationales (Museum of Ancient History), holding a trove of artifacts, figurines, brooches, and weapons from the Stone Age to the 8th century.
