The exhibition Napoléon n'est plus (Napoleon is no more) aims to return to the major subjects surrounding Napoleon's death by renewing perspectives and convening new scientific disciplines (archaeology, medicine, chemistry) in order to complement the historical sources already known. Exhibition co-organized with the Napoleon Foundation.

The death of Napoleon Ier, May 5, 1821, if it goes relatively unnoticed in the eyes of the world, is extremely well documented by his companions in exile. But despite the proliferation of memories, letters, sketches, relics and stories, this story nevertheless presents poorly lit areas, uncertainties, contradictions

So many facts that reason has tried to dissect, and flaws that the imagination hastened to fill. The exhibition aims to return to the major subjects surrounding Napoleon's death by renewing the perspectives.

Summoning new scientific disciplines (archaeology, medicine, chemistry) in order to complete the already known historical sources and the material witnesses of this history, the Army Museum offers visitors all the necessary elements so that it can conduct the investigation itself.

This exhibition is part of the 2021 Napoleonic Season,organized on the occasion of the bicentenary of the emperor's death. The museum will offer a rich and varied cultural offer that will evoke the end of Napoleon's personal adventure, while opening up to current events and the present reality of his legacy for the world.

When: Every day from 10am to 6pm.
Where: The Musée de l'Armée, Les Invalidesm Paris.
