2021, a Napoleonic year not to be missed!

2021 marks the bicentenary of Napoleon’s death… Take the opportunity to immerse yourself in the mementos left by the Emperor in the site that he took over before his ultimate defeat.

The Caillou farmhouse was found by his aide-de-camp on 17 June 1815 late in the day. This building is where Napoleon set up and organised his headquarters. The events of 18 June 1815 would make it Napoleon’s Last Headquarters.

The museum tells the story of the events of this night through different testimonies and anecdotes from civilians and soldiers, all in an authentic setting (see one of the Emperor’s camp beds). Since 1951 the farmhouse and its exterior have been listed as a historic monument. A place and a history to explore alone or with family or friends. There are also walking and cycling routes you can take departing from Napoleon’s Last Headquarters, as well as various activities and organised visits to the battlefield.
