This museum is well worth a visit even if you are not espacially interested in military history and is great value. We didnt go through all the exhibits as my reason for visiting was to see the French outlook on both world wars. There are lots of artefacts ie guns, uniforms and photographs from both conflicts and also other earlier... More

There is so much to see in this museum, so planning to allow sufficient time to see as much as you wish is recommended. I would also recommend hiring the audio headsets available because the majority of display descriptions are in French only. There is also a cafe in the grounds so you can sit, relax and have something to... More

The Army Museum was the surprise of my Paris visit. I went to visit Napoleon's Tomb, and discovered this museum next door. I toured it for a couple hours, and still didn't get to see everything. I regret arriving at 3 pm since it closed at 5 pm. The collection of suits of armor, guns, and cannons going back nearly... More

The army museum is attached to the INVALIDES (Napoleon's Tomb) or vice versa. It is is must see if you are interested in the history of weapons. The different types of horses (made of fibre) and the soldiers attires which were used are very nicely displayed and look very realistic. The collection is really huge. They have hundreds or thousands... More

This place is just amazing with 1000 pieces of armour, Nepolianic, ww1 and ww2 items. Just a brilliant place and gorgeous building too. The resting place and crypt of Nepoleon also has other hero's of France and is an amazing place to visit.

Give yourself plenty of time to visit the Army Museum, there is so much to see and read and take in! We started at Napolean's tomb and then entered the army museum. We went later in the afternoon and ran out of time because we spent so much time taking it all in. Give yourself at least 3 hours, if... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this museum. There was so much information about Napoleon as well as his grandson. In addition we learned a lot about the different wars that France was a part of. Seeing Napoleon's tomb was also interesting as were the many other memorials in the crypts.

This museum is a must see while in Paris. Plan for at least 3-5hrs to see it all. This museum is loaded with weapons and other artifacts of war, highly recommended.

My husband wanted to visit this museum and I didn't expect to get much out of it but I was mistaken. It was very interesting and had so many beautiful items to look at. The uniforms from every era along with the beautifully engraved weapons and armour were lovely to examine. It was heartbreaking to see armour for a child... More
