Address 2 Rue Saint-Come 17000 La Rochelle, France

For a long time, 2 rue Saint-Côme in La Rochelle was home to the city’s museum of decorative art and history.

The building was inaugurated in 1893 by Alcide d’Orbigny-Bernon, a wealthy merchant in the maritime sector and mayor of the city from 1891 to 1905.

The neo-Renaissance-style Hôtel d’Orbigny-Bernon was given to the local authorities by the merchant’s widow. The municipality turned it into a museum in 1921. It housed the famous painting The Siege of La Rochelle with Richelieu by Henri-Paul Motte, as well as Pierre Coutilleau’s Entry of Louis XIII into La Rochelle on 1 November 1628.

The museum collections were transferred in 2012. Today the hotel houses the staff of the city’s cultural services.
