Worth a visit during the walk through the Palace
gru 2017 • Dla rodziny
Nice room although not really impressive from an artistic standpoint. Worth a stop during the visit to the Palace. Like the whole palace, it gives the impression that furniture are not original but were put there afterwards for tourists.

One of the Highlights of our Trip
wrz 2018 • Pary
I teach European History and had made it a point to find the place where the French Revolution started. The King's Indoor Court is about halfway between the Palace and the Train Station. Easy to get to if you use Google Maps.

I was shocked to find that it was free to enter and that they only had one employee present. My wife and I were the only people there. It was so quiet and peaceful. This is where members of the Third Estate made an oath after being locked out of Versailles that they would not leave until a new constitution had been signed. This happened a month before the fall of the Bastille so this is really the place where it all began.

They have statues of many of the major players involved with this drama. There is a massive replica of David's painting of The Tennis Court Oath. I truly was surprised that a site of such historical importance was empty of tourists. It was late afternoon on a Thursday and I guess most are tired after wandering the Palace of Versailles all day and skip this amazing place.

It's beautiful inside. If you have an eye for history then this is a must-see stop. It will take just a few minutes out of your trip to Versailles since it's not far off the path between the Palace and Train Station. Well worth it and its free!

An interesting place to visit
lip 2018 • Pary
In contrast to the famous palace, which is only a stone's throw away, this place is under-visited but really interesting. It is free to enter with quite a lot of relevant information.

Here Monarchy became doomed
cze 2018 • Biznesowy
If you love history, the French Revolution has few more poignant places than the site of the Declaration of the Tennis Court and the establishment of the Estates General. Simultaneously evoking the leisure pursuits of Royaly and the rebellion against unfettered power of kings, this small and free museum is worth finding off the beaten track.

Quick visit and interesting facts
cze 2018 • Dla rodziny
We stopped by this renovated Jeu de Paume where French history is clearly and easily explained. It doesn't take a long time and it is certainly worth going. Entry is free of charge.

French history

Well worth a visit, this indoor 'tennis court' played a significant part in the French Revolution. Interesting that many of those taking part had heads chopped off by the guillotine, the inventor of which has his bust displayed

Modest building down a side street
lut 2018 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
The tennis court is of course a gem for tennis fans (I guess Westminster Hall in London might be, too--I think a tennis ball or two has been discovered in that stately precinct). The Jeu de Plume is a simple, functional building, though the windows are quite big for the era, and it must be one of the oldest surviving purpose-built indoor tennis courts. It has gained a bit of decoration in commemoration of its historic role, but still looks like a tennis court.

A big reproduction of a painting of Mirabeau giving a speech hangs on the Jeu de Paume's outside wall. Neat painting, but obviously of a far grander setting.

The historic significance of this site for the downfall of the monarchy and founding of the National Assembly, can't be overstated. The building has a faint resemblance to Carpenter's Hall in Philadelphia, that until surrounding buildings were demolished, was located on an alley, where the low-profile first iteration of the Continental Congress met.

The Jeu de Paume is easy to find, but does not call attention to itself on a side street, albeit close to the Palace. For a visitor to Versailles, it's a great complement to visiting the immense Chateau and its grounds. And of course the rest of the town is attractive and worth a walk around.

The palace is just money, THIS is History
lis 2017 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
If visiting Versailles, don't miss the tennis court that hosted a turning point in French history. While hundreds queued for the palace, I went early expecting lines here and found none. I experienced this space vibrating as it does with history and was wowed. Do not miss this historic site and breathe the air of revolution. It is magnificence that is not just about money. Priceless.

for love of tennis and/or history of democracy in France
lip 2017 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
The origin of tennis was in France. This is one of the oldest of the indoor courts of "jeu de paume", originally played without racquets (with palms of hand). Later played with racquets, now known as "real tennis". This court was used by French nobility visiting or living at Versailles.
This was the site of a formal proclamation of a Constitution for France which directly led to the French Revolution.
Visiting here is an easy 5 minute walk off your route between Versailles and the train station.
