The Châteaux de Malmaison, also known as the Palace of Malmaison, takes its name from the Normans who once invaded France.

Built in the 18th century the Palace of Malmaison had been owned by rich families for centuries, but during the French Revolution, they were forced to sell it to Joséphine Bonaparte, wife of Napoléon.

She purchased this exquisite home for the equivilant of about 45,000 euros, which was considered to be a small fortune at that time. When Napoloan returned from Egypt, he took ownership of the palace and decorated it with the new imperial style.

It was later purchased by the Queen of Spain and then eventually sold back to Napoléan III, who restored the home to its orginal splendour. In 1906, the castle was turned into a museum dedicated to the lives of Napoléon and Joséphine.

Fabulous! The Paris Pass was great to have on hand during our trip. We only had 5 days, and with 3 children in tow, we wanted to keep things moving as much as possible. We would absolutely recommend utilizing The Paris Pass. In order to get the most out of it, I would encourage you to carefully look through the guidebook so that you can plan out a general guideline to follow for your trip to make sure that you are using all of the opportunities. Enjoy!

Best purchase for first time to Paris! I took my daughter to Paris for a graduation gift. The Paris pass was a lifesaver. We used it everyday, and was accepted for all public transportation. I would highly recommend it.
