Top Models: A Princely Lesson in the 18th Century presents 11 amazing scale models of workshops – including a nail maker, carpenter, locksmith, plumber, and potter – used by the Countess of Genlis to teach the future King Louis Philippe's children about arts and crafts during the 18th century.

Start your tour of the exhibition by learning more about the Madame de Genlis and the topic of princely education in the Orléans family, then move on to the remarkable models used as a teaching tool. Your last stop has a more contemporary point of view while still tying in the Countess of Genlis' pedagogical style; storytelling and models intertwine as you walk through an abundant garden reminiscent of the trips the countess would have made with her pupils.
