The expression on Bernadette’s face, as you enter the museum, invites you to look at the world and its people in a different light.


The entrance to the museum

The museum, designed as a journey, helps you to discover the life of Bernadette.  It retraces the various places connected with her – the cachot, the grotto, the hospice in Lourdes and her life in Nevers.

Photographs and objects depict Bernadette’s various activities during the thirteen years spent in Nevers.

“A place of memories!  Yes, but more especially a life-giving memory, a memory of an ordinary life and an invitation to each one of us to go further.”
