About Musee Bernadotte, Pau

The Museum of Bernadotte was once the house and birthplace of Jean Baptiste Bernadotte a soldier who turned Marshal and then eventually became the King of Sweden and Norway during the time of Napoleon. Built around 1730, the house still retains the feel & mood by keeping the same furniture and settings of the bearnaise family at the time. Even the streets through which Bernadotte used to walk home are kept in the same way.

  • The Museum contains many personal and historic artefacts such as swords, spurs, gloves from the time along with rare books, porcelain.
  • There are drawings and paintings describing and re-enacting significant moments from Battle scenes and Bernadotte’s heroic rise to power.
  • It also has the infamous letter by Napoleon himself who allowed the favourable response to Crown Bernadotte as the Prince of Sweden.

  • I went to this unique museum on a Saturday morning and had the entire place to myself. Yes, the displays are old-fashioned and dusty, but this adds to the quirky charm, and the museum deserves to have a lot more visitors, not least because of the extremely enthusiastic curator who is more than happy to share his encyclopedic knowledge of Swedish royalty and Napoleonic battles with you (if you speak French). It is testament to the story of one extraordinary man, Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte, who came from fairly humble origins in Pau and went on to be one of Napoleon's most successful generals and was invited to become King of Sweden - and also of his descendants, the House of Bernadotte - artists, poets, musicians, reformers, some of whom went on to become crowned heads of various European courts in their own right. The top floor is pretty much laid out like a typical home of the period, with lovely examples of furniture from the Béarn. On the ground floor there is a collection of Swedish art from the early 20th century, including by two women artists who were pupils of Matisse. The museum closes over lunch from 12 - 2pm, and is incredibly good value - just 3 Euro admission.

  • Belle demeure bien conservée, avec dispositif original (donc ludique) d'audio-guide à la demande, gratuit. Belle plongée dans l'Histoire, jusqu'à la famille royale suédoise actuelle. On se sent fier d'être Palois, même d'adoption !

  • Ancienne maison style béarnais typique Visite avec audio guide, permettant de découvrir la destinée de ce palois devenu roi de Suède à l'époque napoléonienne.

  • Musée très intéressant qui nous révèle une partie de l'histoire de Pau à travers le destin de Charles XIV Jean Bernadotte qui est devenu Roi de Suède.

  • Le musée bernadotte est en restauration actuellement
