Looks interesting, I'll try and see if I can go. Thankfully I'm only an hour away from the NGV.

Went a couple of months ago...although have to say thought the most interesting part by far was the material dealing with the French exploration of Australia during Napoleon's reign. Would love to have wandered around Josephine's marsupial menagerie.

It was good. Local restaurateur Jacques Reymond had onion soup going on a cold Wednesday night when my wife and I went.

Davout's ceremonial sword was impressive. The propaganda painting of Napoleon crossing the Alps (horses weren't even present) is an enormous canvas.

David's Death of Marat was probably the highlight for me:
