Presentation

From September 15 to December 9, 2018, the exhibition Les armes savantes - 350 years of military innovations at Versailles presents the links between the Versailles territory and military innovations.
From September 15 to December 9, 2018, the exhibition Les armes savantes - 350 years of military innovations at Versailles presents the links between the Versailles territory and military innovations. These ties, born from the centralization of monarchical power under the Ancien Régime, are still relevant in the 21st century.
Indeed, although many other territories have been the cradle of innovative structures (arsenals, foundries, study centers ...), Versailles is the only one to gather, in the presence or in the immediate vicinity of the state decision-making bodies, all the actors of the innovation: prescribers, designers, manufacturers and users.
The exhibition features a selection of objects, works and documents from the collections of national heritage institutions (Musée de l'Armée, Defense Historical Service, Museum of Relief Plans ...) and Versailles (museum Lambinet, Central Library, Archives communales), but also documents and objects preserved by military institutions and armament manufacturers based in Versailles.
The curatorship is provided by Christophe Larribère, historian and consultant in heritage mediation, and by Christophe Pommier, assistant curator at the Musée de l'Armée.

SPONSORSHIP AND PARTNERSHIP
The exhibition Les armes savantes - 350 years of military innovations in Versailles benefits from the exceptional support of Nexter Systems, the exclusive patron of the exhibition, as well as the support of the Musée de l'Armée. She also received the label of the Mission of the Centenary of the War of 14-18.
