Lonely Planet review for Musée Condé
The Grand Château contains the Musée Condé. Its unremarkable 19th-century rooms are adorned with furnishings, paintings and sculptures haphazardly arranged according to the whims of the duke, who donated the chateau to the Institut de France at the end of the 19th century on the condition that the exhibits not be reorganised and that they remain open to the public. The most remarkable works are hidden away in a small room called the Sanctuaire, including paintings by Raphael, Filippino Lippi and Jean Fouquet.
