From late July to early August in 1815, fallen French Emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte was a prisoner on board HMS Bellerophon in Plymouth Sound before being exiled to Saint Helena. 

Come along and find out more about the museum's exhibition by curator Clive Charlton from Plymouth University.

Admission is free but places are limited. Collect a ticket from the museum's Welcome Desk or call to request one to be put aside. Unreserved tickets may also be available on the day so it's worth getting in touch to check.

Unless stated, no two 'Art Bites' are the same so there's always a reason to come back and discover more! 

Donations welcome. Advance booking advised.
