Price of admission to the château
For five years now, Château de Valençay has worked towards opening a new room where visitors can finally discover the treasures of Prince Talleyrand in Valençay. Located in the heart of the château, the new hall of treasures will create an intimate atmosphere of discovery for an unseen collection of objects that belonged to the prince of diplomats.
Alongside rare, prestigious decorations and garnments cmpletely restored with golden embroidery, we also wanted to show the more intimate items that were given to him by his close female friends, as well as objects related to his profession with a collection of diplomatic portfolios, notably the “Congress of Vienna” portfolio. Lastly, unusual objects showing a glimpse into his private life, such as his invalid shoes and the pen he used in his final years, will add a human dimension to this unique exhibition, presenting to the public for the first time the hidden treasures of the Château de Valençay.
