The Napoleon Museum has an extensive collection of furniture, smaller collectables, tableware, paintings, graphic art, autographs, and books that had once been in the possession of Empress Joséphine, Queen Hortense as well as Prince Louis Napoléon.
Some items are world renowned and are often loaned to partner museums. That’s why, for example, Antoine Baron Gros’ Napoleon at the Pont d’Arcole was on display in the National Gallery Victoria in Melbourne (Australia) for 4 months during the summer of 2012.
Not surprisingly, not all exhibits can be displayed. Well protected – not just against climatic conditions – they’re stored in external depositories.
