(75+ reviews on the web)
History Museum
Built in the 17th century, Bois Preau once exclusively served Napoleon and Josephine Bonaparte, and then became a seat of the French government. Nowadays, the chateau houses a museum detailing Napoleon's captivity and death on the island of Saint Helena, the return of his body, and the Napoleonic legend. When you arrive, look for the statue of Josephine followed by busts of Napoleon and a larger-than-life statue of the emperor on his deathbed. Continue on to tour Josephine's private apartments, her collections of paintings, and her personalized gardens. Whether or not you have a particular interest in this period of history, the site makes a lovely area to walk around and explore.

  • Pity that the building is completely closed. Very nice Park for themselves Balladen, apart from the historical aspect, not much to visit. Still worth a visit.

  • A park full of world weekend at the beautiful days... It's the old gardens of the Castle, but nothing exceptional. Sceaux Park is much better.
