Exhibition “The navy under the First French Empire”
A look at one of the major battles in our history
This museum is situated in the former inn where the Duke of Wellington stayed on the nights of 17 and 18 June 1815. You can still visit the Duke’s bedroom, the office where he wrote his victory report, and his aide-de-camp’s bedroom.
Various other rooms have been dedicated, each to an army, including authentic documents, etchings, weapons and souvenirs of the various nations that took part in the combat. There is also an impressive collection of rare weapons, such as “la Suffisante”, a cannon manufactured in Douai, France in 1813 and abandoned on the battlefield.
Your individual ticket for entry into the museum entitles you to an audio guide available in various languages. Duration of the visit: 50 minutes.
Possibility of guided tours (to be booked).
Possibility to organize a visit specially designed for the youngest.
People with specific needs
For the time being we only have a driveway at the rear of the temporary exhibition hall, which means that access is very limited (our building is classified). Our new scenography will integrate the necessary adjustments to allow easy access for a wider audience (including elevator).
