It was a special exhibit running at the Franklin Institute since summer, and ended January 2. We finally got our act together and saw it Thursday. It is moving to Cincinnati next, and I highly recomend it for anyone even remotely interested in that sort of thing. It will also be going to other museums later, but I don't believe they have been announced
You will walk away in awe of the woman. She had to be about the most intelligent, and powerful woman in history..fluent in 5 languages and highly educated in all the sciences and math, a very skilled diplomat, and evidently gorgeous. Not to mention she managed to form personal and political alliances with the 2 most powerful men of her time (a bit of diplomacy at work, lol). Heck she even was an expert on womans health and cosmetics (I'm thinking she was a bit of a scientist and experiented with mixing plants, etc for cosmetics).
Just thought I'd give a heads up to those in the Cincinnati area. It was well worth the money.
