Not only was the inventor of the ambulance from Bigorre, but he also came from the neighbouring village of Campan: Beaudéan. There, the Larrey Museum offers an evocation of the life of Dominique Jean Larrey, born in 1766 in a typical Beaudéan house, now reimagined as a museum.


The birthplace of the precursor of humanitarian medicine!

A surgeon in Napoleon’s army, he distinguished himself by his dexterity and his visionary spirit: he created the “flying ambulances”, treating all the wounded without distinction of nationality.

Sound and light show, surgical objects, reconstructed ambulance, art gallery, the Larrey Museum is a place of discovery for all!
