Sounds like a fascinating exhibit, Roy.  I'm sure many will learn a lot about Napoleon while viewing it.

Good morning, Roy. This is an exhibit I'd love... I read my first biography of Napoleon and Josephine when I as 12 years ofd... and have been fascinated by this time in history since.

We definitely plan to see this exhibit. We are members of the museum and try to see all of the major exhibits.

I am not big on visiting museums, but when I am in a place that I have never been before, I like visiting them and learning about the history.
