If you like Napoleon Bonaparte history, it's a place to visit as he and his infant son are buried there. If you like warfare and history, it's also a place you would like. There are armoires from medieval times to WWII uniforms and equipments. It's one of my son's favorite museums in Paris. They also have a cafeteria where you... More

You need a day to visit the museum. It's very well preserved. The medieval armory was an impressive collection and Napoleons tomb. Its a must!

At first, we just went there to see the building (Les Invalides), but then we decided to go to the museum. We didn't plan to visit it, so we didn't know about openings hours. The museum is open till the 6 pm and we were there at 5 pm, so we only had an hour for our visit, which was... More

We were sorry to see that there had been an exhibition about the Musketeers that we had missed, but being able to buy a small replica of a cannon to put on my desk was in itself worth the visit. On one side of the courtyard you have the Arsenal, which houses medieval suits of armor, swords, shields, helmets and... More

This was great as something different from the art and culture - seeing suits of armor and ancient weaponry was really something for this Canadian! The WW1 and WW2 we went through quickly because we have our own history of those, and they were pretty France-centric (perfectly understandable, just not too interesting to us) but the more ancient stuff was...

Les Invalides boasts spectacular architecture both inside and outside. The well preserved exhibits are truly spectacular and very interesting! The Tomb of Napoleon was the highlight of our visit. After our tour my husband and I decided to buy Champagne, cheese and snacks at a nearby supermarket. We headed to the lovely gardens (Esplanade des Invalides) which lead up to... More

After days of walking, shopping and going to art museums, my two boys were ready for something different in their Paris vacation. Well they got it at the Musee D'Armee. They absolutely loved looking at all the weaponary, armor and other artifacts. Of special appreciation were the WW1 & WW2 exhibits. We ended our visit with the impressive Tomb of... More

This is the second time we have visited the Musee D'Armee as it is so huge one visit is not enough. The entrance fee is Euro9.50 per adult and we spent 6 hours in the museum mainly visiting the WW1 and WWII rooms as well as the newly opened exhibition and cinema to Charles de Gaulle. You can leave the... More

Just back from visiting Paris and this is the attraction that is still on the minds of both my girlfriend and I. Wonderfully preserved history in a fantastic building beautifully decorated, with some jaw dropping exhibits and architecture. The Tomb of Napoleon was stunning. I'd highly reccommend the audio guide, it may not be the easiest to work but the... More
