About
Marie Louise of Austria, Empress of France as second wife of Napoleon, after his fall was destined to Parma, small but strategic Duchy. There she became an attentive and caring sovereign, still beloved nowadays. Her magnificent collections and memorabilia both from the Empire and the Ducal period passed to her daughter's family, from which Glauco Lombardi bought them aiming to found a Museum which finally opened in 1961. It is thus possible to discover her inner sensibility along with the events that transformed Europe in the XIX century, experiencing the art and life of that era.

Full of treasures!
Oct 2021
I really liked this museum but wish I had a guide who could explain some of the letters since they were all in Italian. There were a lot of objects from Marie Louise and Napolean's life that were fascinating.

Unexpected little museum
Sep 2020
Interesting and unexpected historical connection between Napoleon and Parma. Important and unusual for recognising the role of a woman in high society at that time. The dedication to acquiring the objects to set up this museum is evident. It’s an understated place that made for an interesting hour browsing the exhibits, don’t forget to look up at the ceilings.

A Museum for History Buffs
Sep 2019
The Museum is interesting for those who are interested in history. It is a relatively small Museum, but if you are there for a day and Napoleon is not your hobby, I recommend to go and visit the other treasures of this amazing City.

It worth a visit
May 2019 • Friends
Probably not the first thing to see when in Parma but, still, it worth a half an hour visit. There are many items on display, interesting even if you are not a fan of the second wife of Napoleon.

We now know Maria Louise/ aka Maria Louigia

Who knew about Napoleon's second wife until we visited Parma?
She was the patron of the city after Napoleon was exiled and is responsible for most of the cultural buildings in the city. The museum brings her to life. There are also music performances in the museum on weekends.

Full of screaming kids running around
Oct 2018 • Couples
I didn't pay our tickets to watch napoleonian museum while 20 badly bred children screaming and running around my feet. Maybe they should be prepared for visiting museums first.

Life told through objects
Jul 2018 • Solo
This a lovely museum focusing on the object that were touched by the revered Duchess of Parma Maria Luisa. You can dive into her interests like fishing and needlepoint, admire her gowns and try to get a grip on her family and connections. You can take 20 minutes or an hour.

A special event
May 2018 • Couples
Devoted almost exclusively to artifacts surrounding the life of Marie Louise, it requires one to take on a focused perspective. Huge numbers of small works, but many of the etchings were excellent. Not a "must see" but a good "second site."
