New: Discover the Chateau de Chantilly app
To mark the bicentenary of the birth of Henri d’Orléans, Duke of Aumale (1822-2022), the rich heritage of the Château de Chantilly can now be visited by everyone, thanks to a new mobile app!
This app can be downloaded free of charge on Apple and Android devices and is available in French and English. It enables all visitors, even the youngest, to access the exceptional heritage of Chantilly on their smartphones. Via several itineraries, with just a few clicks, this new mediation resource opens up the history of the wonderful Chantilly gardens, the fantastic collection in the Condé Museum and the architectural beauty of the Great Stables
The app has a wealth of content, audio tracks, detailed descriptions of certain works, videos with explanations from the Museum’s curators, HD and 360° photos, and archive images. Fun versions enable children to meet the princes of Chantilly in various quests and to help a traveller who is lost in time: a great way to discover the extraordinary heritage of the Château de Chantilly while having fun!
With this multimodal digital application, the Château de Chantilly wants to enrich its visitors’ experience before, during or after the visit. It was developed thanks to the support of the Crédit Mutuel Nord Europe Foundation and the support of the Hauts-de-France Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs.

The Crédit Mutuel Nord Europe foundation is now sponsoring the Château de Chantilly
The Crédit Mutuel Nord Europe Foundation is a major partner of culture in its regions. It supports and encourages the development of projects by key stakeholders in the territory, particularly those targeting access to culture for everyone.
In 2021 the Foundation chose for the first time to support the Château de Chantilly with its Chantilly app project, thereby participating in the creation of a modern mediation tool, facilitating discovery of the collections and venues for all audiences.
“We wanted to demonstrate our interest in this exceptional site, a jewel of our national heritage, while at the same time participating in a project opening up culture through outreach, a project for people. I am delighted it has come to fruition now, in early 2022, and I sincerely hope it contributes to knowledge and fulfilment for all.” Laurence PAVIE, CMNE Foundation Delegate.”

As such, it benefitted from the support of the Hauts-de-France Regional Directorate of cultural affairs.
