A spectacular imperial barge built for Napoleon Bonaparte has been unveiled at the Naval Museum in Brest, France, following a restoration project.

Ten specialist restorers worked on the vessel, which was constructed in 1810, for two months prior to the opening of the new display on Friday, according to a press release from the museum.

Visitors can appreciate the 62-foot barge from all angles, thanks to glass bays underneath and a mirror that hangs over the top.

Napoleon Bonaparte, also known as Napoleon I, declared himself France’s emperor in 1804 and made a lasting impact on the country as a military leader and emperor, waging wars against many of the European powers of the time.
