We then walked down Kleber Avenue to the Cite De Architecture (1933 World Expo buildings that now house the Marine Navy Museum and a performing arts center). This location is where famous and infamous persons (like Adolph Hitler) have been pictured looking over the Seine River to the Eiffel Tower.
Tom had been to the Army museum at Invalides (that where Napoleon’s tomb is) just to the West of the Eiffel Tower with Uncle John back in 2003, so this time he HAD to visit the Navy museum (that he did not know even existed back in 2003), and WOW what a GREAT place.
Entrance fee is 8 Euros with head phone + 2 more Euros if you wanted to visit the special presentation on how the Cleopatra Needle in front of the Louver was transported by the Napoleons engineers from Egypt to Paris.
Tom was literally BLOWN AWAY with all the paintings and especially with all the ship models (old and new). He noted when he comes back to Paris, this is going to be an all day museum for him to revisit (we only spent around two hours in this place today).
