Napoleon's things

There's a whole wing of the Louvre dedicated to Napoleon's personal effects. Stuff from his apartment, all that. Are people really that interested in seeing the silverware that this asshole used? The French do realize that after he was exiled, he was referred to as the usurper, and that whoever came under the even slightest suspicion of being a Bonapartist was guillotine-d. They realize that right?
