Napoléon, exposition temporaire

Date From to
Napoléon, exposition temporaire

The Réunion des Musées Nationaux proposes an immersive exhibition about Napoleon in the Grande Halle de La Villette from May 28 to September 19, 2021.

Around 150 works presented chronologically retrace Napoleon's journey on the occasion of the bicentenary of his death. The immersive system allows you to immerse yourself in the works from the national museums: the Army Museum, the National Museum of the Château of Fontainebleau, the Louvre Museum, the National Museum of the Castles of Malmaison and Bois-Préau, the National Furniture, the Napoleon Foundation and the National Museum of the Castles of Versailles and Trianon.

Various works and objects will be on display during this exceptional exhibition. Personal objects belonging to the emperor, works created during his reign and contemporary creations inspired by this complex figure, will reveal all the facets of this controversial historical figure through a chronological and didactic scenography. The reconstitutions and digital devices  guide us through the History of France.

A 9-point route interspersed with rooms with reconstructions. An educational path will be dedicated to  children to stick as close as possible to the school program.
