The medieval section was our favourite. Cannot believe the craftsmens skills in producing the armour and like. Intricate patterns stamped into their work in minute detail, astonishing! The other parts were also great and every section has a small video screen to help explain the particular events.

So many displays of army uniforms, weapons, and everything pertained to Napoleon armies. If you're fan of weaponry, you 'll love this. Nice and cool air conditioner keep the visit pleasant.

This was our 1st stop on our Paris experience. We went with a bit of 'I know what this is going to be' attitude. I was glad we were wrong. If you have seen pictures or other museums, you will not be disappointed. There is more than 1 floor and because of the lay out you have to present you... More

I took the group to the Army Museum this spring. I wasn't sure how the ladies in the group would like the museum, but to my amazement they really enjoyed it very much. They found the old uniforms and weapons very interesting.

Althought the museum contains great pieces, it is very badly organised. We had to show tickets and pass security more that tree times. Also,the museam has a lack of direction and sign to follow. We had difficulty to follow the audio comments. Still a must see.

You cannot prepare yourself for how spectacular this place is. Well worth a visit. The building and sculptures are amazing and you won't get enough of everything.

My partner loves all this sort of stuff and really enjoyed himself walking around the museum. There is so much to see with lots of floors and so much history to take in! I learnt a lot from my visit here. The architecture of the building is just incredible to. I would suggest for anyone planning a visit to Paris... More

It's nice, but a disappointment. While the monument to General La Foch is really moving, Napoleon's Tomb is just an overindulgent load of nonsense. I did it. Don't ever have to do it again!

The balance between actual physical artifacts and the sweep of history is often a difficult one for museum curators; but clearly not here. French military history over the last 400 years or so is covered in some detail and supported by superbly displayed and numerous objects, with weapons and uniforms being naturally the heart of the collection.

This museum has lots of things to see, and is curated very well. Although I'm happy to just look through and am not necessarily interested in reading all the details, my husband was fascinated and could have spent an entire day here. (I should have just left him here and gone shopping! :P)
