The exhibition Legendary Napoleon opened at the Yellowbox Art Museum in Qingdao, Shandong province on Aug 7, as part of celebrations for the 56th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and France.

It is the first large-scale Napoleon-themed exhibition brought to Shandong from abroad.

Nearly 200 important historical relics are on display, including paintings and sculptures created for Napoleon by famous artists and precious manuscripts written by Napoleon, as well as clothes, ornaments, military supplies, furniture and daily necessities owned by Napoleon.

A series of experience activities will also be launched in Qingdao to help locals better understand the legendary French statesman and military leader, as well as French culture.

The exhibition will last until Nov 15.
