Walking through the medieval exhibits practically gave me a stroke. I work with a museum's military collections, and one huge problem we have is with the rust caused by the oil on people's hands when they have handled iron weapons. In early phases, you can actually see the rust lines tracing out people's fingerprint ridges. While visiting, I kept seeing... More

This museum requires a ticket for children (even though children are free) , where the more visited museums do not, however there was no queue. The army museum was great for kids (and adults) with lots of armour and swords complimented with information regarding the army attire. After the visit, we enjoyed a quick lunch at the Invalides cafe which... More

Took us close to 3 hours to finish touring the whole place. It contains great information on military history & the great historical wars. Go if you love history, or else it can be quite boring. Not good for photography because most things are displayed in glass enclosure & the whole place is dimly lit, making it hard to take... More

We decided to spend our last day in Paris exploring the Invalides Musee de l"Armee as it was given a must see by Rick Steves. We could see the golden dome of the the Dome Church housing the tomb of Napoleon I from our apartment balcony and thought we should explore it. We decided to rent the English audio guide... More

Not a big fan of Army Museums, but this one was amazing. Very interesting, lots of things to see (we didn't get to see it all in about 4 hours)

Visited on Aug 23. My husband and 11 years old son went there to see Napoleon tоmb and the weapon museum. They really enjoyed it. Whoever likes history and military history in particular, this place is a must. Tip: bus line 82 takes you right to the entrance from the chapel (Napoleon tomb) side.

We made time to go see Napoleons Tomb, even though we were not interested in seeing the whole Military museum at the time. It was spectacular and well worth the visit. In fact, we will now make the time to visit the rest of the museum if we are ever in Paris again. It is most definitely the neatest, calmest... More

I'm mostly giving this attraction 4 stars because both my husband and adult son loved it. My daughter-in-law and I would have enjoyed it more if we moved through it at a faster pace. It was easy to get to on the train from our hotel near the Effel Tower. Napoleon's Tomb is in a spectacular setting, and we all... More

My wife and daughters went to the d'Orsay, so my son and walked (about 15 minutes) to the Army Museum / Napoleon's tomb. The amount of weapons/armour/cannons, etc... is mind-boggling. They have material from prehistoric times but mostly from the past 400-500 years. Wonderful visit! The only disappointing part was on the top floor they had miniature versions of several... More
