Napoleon Bonaparte fundamentally changed the political geography of Europe, radically and lastingly transforming the continent’s civic landscape within a very short timespan. 2019 marks the anniversary of his birthday: 250 years have gone by since the birth of the French general, politician and emperor. Like Alexander von Humboldt, who revolutionised people’s view of nature, and developed modern, interdisciplinary scientific perspectives, Napoleon, too, significantly contributed to shaping our modern world.

After Pforzheim’s Jewellery Museum reponend after the lockdown due to corona, the current special exhibition can be seen until Sunday, 14 June. As no guided are tours possible for the time being, curator Martina Eberspächer and museum director Cornelie Holzach take visitors on a virtual tour of the exhibition.
