“Limited Interest.”
Review of Musee Bernadotte

Musee Bernadotte
Ranked #11 of 41 things to do in Pau
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 October 2014

Not sure what we expected but this wasn't it. 2 floors of an old house with mostly etchings related to Jean Baptiste Bernadotte and some rather time worn artifacts and furniture. If you are not Swedish it is of limited interest.

Thank cordyroy

Ok, perhaps this attraction is more interesting for Swedish people like myself, who wants to learn more about our royal family Bernadotte. If you are a big fan of them, this attraction probably get a better score. If you have little interest in them, you might not want to go at all.

Jean Baptiste Bernadotte started as a private Soldier and ended as King of Sweden. Married Desiree Clary Napoleon's ex Fiancee. His ancestors still are the Swedish Royal family ( and most of Northern Europe's). By the end of the Napleonic wars he still had his Swedish army! There is still residual resentment in France against him.
The museum is a little disappointing with a scanty history and few memorable artifacts.
But is is worth a visit for such a remarkable man

Tucked away, you could almost miss it.

There are few places to visit like this in Pau so when I stumbled upon it by accident it was a real find. I spent an afternoon taking in every nook and cranny of this beautiful, creaking old house and I loved learning about the history.

If you have time it is worth a short visit. Better still admission is very inexpensive.
