Napoleon - a military leader, enemy of the British state and an exile!
This special exhibition tells the fascinating story of Napoleon and his time in exile on St Helena. Find out who cared for him until his death in May 1821 and visit a replica of his bedroom in Longwood House.
Exhibition includes some items which belonged to Napoleon himself. A coat/tunic worn by Napoleon at the Battle of Marengo will be at the museum until 27th November as well as his pistols until the end of the year. It is the first time that some of these items will have been on display in the UK.
