Napoleon in Playmobil® at Autun

What could be more remarkable than the life of Napoleon, who came from his native Corsica at the age of 10 and, in 1779, did his first apprenticeship on French soil at the Collège d’Autun (where he would later return)? From Ajaccio to St Helena, the story of the man who became the first French emperor fascinates young and old alike.
Autun is offering an exhibition of Playmobil® figures, presenting the different stages of Napoleon’s life and some of the major battles of his reign in 19 “tableaux”, to provide a fun and but also an educational introduction to napoleonic history for youngsters.
Playmobil® figures will help you (re)discover the great moments in the life of Napoleon I, from the beginnings of his military career to his death on St Helena
It’s a unique and fun experience for all the family.

Throughout the exhibition
The story of Napoleon I is told in 19 “tableaux” recreated by “Playmobil” characters.
5 “dioramas” and 14 scenes illustrate the highlights of the Emperor’s life.
The largest of the dioramas, “The Battle of Waterloo”, measures 36m², the Battle of Eylau is 18m², the Egyptian Campaign 10m²…
