The horse shows are the highlight, along with the stables where they are kept. The museum itself if of modest interest for the non-specialist

A must visit for the history of Chantilly. I found it a little less interesting than most of my friends who are Equestrians, but all the same, I believe they had a lot more vested interest in it...

The horse show is terrible. 1st reason is the show is in French that you don’t understand anything, second thing is you dont see anything interesting. Horses dont jump or I dont know, they dont do anything interesting. They are just walking. You can see walkers horses anywhere in a rural area. No need to pay for this show.
If you don’t speak France I suggest you just skip the show (about 40mins) and pay you time in the museum or in the castle.
