Napoleon @ The National Constitution Center

A short man with a large legacy, Napoleon remains an enigmatic figure in world history. And to our advantage, the visiting exhibit Napoleon, coming to the National Constitution Center at the end of May, will provide a greater understanding of the man behind the legend.

The National Constitution Center is the first stop in North America for this traveling exhibition. While it provides a peek into the personal life of Napoleon, it also explains the impact that democracy in the United States had on the French Revolution.

“It is our hope visitors will be reminded of both the historic and ongoing influence the United States has on other nations, and feel a sense of pride knowing countries around the world have gained strength and inspiration from our successful pursuit of democracy,” states Linda Johnson, President and CEO of the National Constitution Center.

Plus, where else can you see Napoleon’s pajamas and bed? Was he really as short as people said? You’ll have to go check out the exhibit for yourself.
