We seriously underestimated how good the army museum was after spending a fair bit of time in the dome area where Napolean is buried. We were quite gobsmacked at Napolean's tomb to be honest and spent longer than we planned trying to work out why...More

This museum is certainly worth a visit from information and great exhibits about collections of armoury over the years from hundred of years ago to much more recent action.

Enormously interesting and important building and displays, but a lot of walking on hard surfaces.Even the entrance is quite a walk from the main street. Everything important about Napoleonic era is in this building and well designed on several very long floors

Following Napoleon’s steps at Musée de L’Armée and his Tomb (Les Invalides) in Paris, extraordinary mausoleum and museum to pay tribute to the Emperor. Loving my military boots by the way.

It is amazing the size of the military collection that steps you through the different eras in French history. We spent over three hours here, €12 for adults children free. Entry also provides access to the Domed Cathedral to view Napoleon’s tomb.
