The palace and the gardens are beautiful. Great place to escape the craziness of central Paris, relax, people watch, and hang out.

You can only visit the building with a government official invitation or during a small window of time when all government buildings are opened to the general public. Regardless. FREE. The beautiful gardens are free.
