Date Night in Paris

By Order of the Emperor of France
The Eye of Napoléon Stays through March 2
The Frazier to Celebrate with Extended Saturday Night Hours
Wow! An order from The Emperor of France.
Now the real story. This great idea came from our friends at the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, where The Eye of Napoléon treasures go on display in May. Instead of putting the artifacts of Napoleon and his Court in storage, we agreed it would be best for everyone to keep them on display through March 2. With more time comes more exciting Napoléon-related programming for our guests!
To celebrate The Eye of Napoléon, the Frazier History Museum will host Date Night in Paris on Saturday, January 11, 2014 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. to kick off a four-week series of extended Saturday night hours. Date Night in Paris will bring a touch of France to the Frazier with French music, French lessons, a French film, special gallery tours/talks and a cash bar featuring specialty cocktails such as “The Eifel Tower”, “Night in Paris” and “The French Pearl.” There is no extra charge to attend the event. Adult admission is $18.50. Special exhibition rates for members apply.
In addition to the January 11 Date Night in Paris, the museum will have a cash bar and remain open until 9 p.m. on the following Saturdays: January 18, 25, and February 1st. If you haven’t had a chance to see The Eye of Napoléon, a Saturday night is a perfect time to enjoy it.
Long live The Eye of Napoléon!
