Musée Napoléon

WELCOME TO THE MUSEUM

AN AUTHENTIC PLACE

17 June 1815. It’s almost dark, it’s raining. Napoleon’s troops are exhausted. They feel the presence of enemy forces. The Emperor ordered them to stop and his aides de camp spotted an unoccupied residence. It was The Caillou Farm. It will be Napoleon’s Last Headquarters.

This ancient farmhouse, now a museum, highlights the events of that famous night thanks to military and civilian witnesses.  This is where Napoleon laid out his strategy and battle plans.  In authentic surroundings, the museum exhibits objects pertaining essentially to the French army, including one of Emperor Napoleon’s camp beds.

The Last HQ of Napoleon (DQGN) was an historic building before becoming a museum. In fact, the farmhouse has a history of its own, both before and after the Napoleonic era. Furthermore, the farmhouse and its outbuildings are officially listed historical monuments.

A museum for everyone!

Whether alone or with family or friends, visitors of any age and experience will explore at their own rhythm, according to their own interests.  Access is by car, bicycle, or public transportation.  The different displays allow interaction by all, in order to better understand this moment in history.
