During a recent trip to Paris we decided to visit the Musee d' Orsay. Upon arriving we noticed very long lines and extensive security checks. We then noticed the National Museum of the Legion of Honor next door. We then approached security at the door and were told it was free entrance and that you would be able to take photos without a flash. It turned into a memorable experience with probably one of the most extensive medal collections in the world. As a medal collector it was like going to heaven. The artwork and displays were outstanding with even the medals of Napolean on display. In addition to magnificent displays drawers of medals could be opened for almost every country in the world to display national awards and medals rarely ever seen. Audio receivers were available to describe all the displays. This is a definite Paris highlight.
