Museum celebrating Emperor Napoleon I reopens at the Château de Fontainebleau; Peter Anderson; Royal Central
The museum celebrating the life of Emperor Napoleon I at the Château de Fontainebleau reopened last Sunday (25th February) after being closed since May 2017. Essential lighting safety work needed to be completed and the decision was taken to partly upgrade and restructure the museum during the downtime of the works. Thanks to public donations and sponsorship the museum have managed to acquire many new pieces, and eighty-eight of these are being incorporated in the displays within the museum.
The Napoleon I Museum is one of four museums within the Chateau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is situated in the Louis XV wing. It contains many items of furniture, ceramics, paintings, clothes and armour together with documents and historical artefacts from a time at the beginning of the nineteenth century when many of the rulers of Europe were related to the Emperor as shown in one of the pictures in the exhibition.

The height of culture. The epicenter of fashion. The City of Lights.
Thinking about Paris calls to mind images of ostentatious buildings, gilded in gold, lording over the gritty streets below. And, as one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, it occupies a spot on nearly every traveler’s bucket list.
As a first-time visitor to Paris, it’s easy to get lost in the massive amount of cultural riches you’ll find there. Yes, the city is filled with incredible art museums, important landmarks, and delicious food. But Paris isn’t the only thing France has to offer.
The first time we visited France, we made the mistake of never leaving the city.
Seriously, don’t be like us.
