Bois Preau, Rueil-Malmaison

#5 of 14 in Museums in Hauts-de-Seine
History Museum Historic Site
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.

  • To complete the visite of the Castle. Lot of inhabitants during the week-end. Reading, walking, children playing on the grass...  more »
  • The large park that separates downtown from the Castle. Nice lawn to relax, but also trees for shade and a few slides for children. The place is used for many events: on July 14, concert, Jubilee napoleon. Very nice!
