PROS: a great exhibit if you are into armed forces and war history; the exhibits ranged from artillery to uniforms, helmets to the strategies in the different wars; there is a lot to take in if you would like to read it all; there are videos (in French, some have English subtitles) CONS: can be overwhelming and I saw a...

We first went to see Napoleons Resting place which was spectacular. The army museum was fantastic - the history through the various war years was very interesting. My husband really enjoyed this visit. There is plenty to see and lots of original film footage. It is a very large museum and one could spend hours soaking up the atmosphere. Very... More

Not to generalize, but friend Dave and I spent a worthwhile afternoon here while our wives perused the shops of Paris. From the quaintness of halberds and knights' armor to the horrors of 20th Century warfare, the museum has much to enthrall and entertain the military history buff. Highly recommended, with excellent English labelling translated from the French. A fascinating... More

I have seen Armaments before, but this was the most extensive ever. Some of the armament was highly polished which I am not used to seeing. Combine this visit with the cathedral and Napoleon's tomb makes for a good trip. Now if they can only get the French to agree where the Battle of Waterloo was fought!

A surprisingly large museum full of military history it gives a broad view of France's and other countries military, well structured tour very helpful staff, it's worth a visit especially to see the Napoleonic history. Go see Napoleons tomb it's beautiful! If you are under 26 use some ID and you can get in free.

Boring definition, a section of the museum dedicated to 3D relief maps that all start to look the same, old videos in French with wobbily viedios, and a room full of sords. Napolians toom was very good though making the visit to this museum somewhat worth it.

If you are interested in military history, don't miss this museum. It provides an awesome overview of Western Warfare over the last several hundred years which is very impressive. The collection of armor and weapons is almost too much. When I visited, I paid extra for the de'Gaulle & Churchill exhibit and thought it was top-notch. Best of all, this... More

We didn't know what to expect with this museum. We figured we would spend 1-1.5 hours inside... Well, we only did about half of the museum before we had to leave. This museum is great for anyone who likes military history. I think kids would like to see the suits of armor from the middle ages. I know I was... More

I was very impressed with the great amount of history, from armor of French royalty to WWII, this is well worth your time if you have any interest in military history. If you've been to London, the artifacts on display are like a combination of the Imperial War Museum and the Tower of London's collections. I spent 2.5 hours (that... More
