“A Military Collectors dream come true.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

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.

“Interesting, something different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

If you like the topic of the museum you will love it! It's interesting, nothing like the other museums in Paris. It's small, but with the audio tour you can enjoy listening to lots of information. Furthermore, I really liked the staff of the museum. They were very kind.

“Free entrance + free audio guide”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

After our visit in the musée d'Orsay we went to the National Museum of the Legion of Honour because my friend was very interested in it. Free entrance and a free audio guide made us very happy visitors. If you have time for it you should check it out but I guess there a more interesting museums in Paris. Still it was a nice history lesson and we enjoyed it.

“Don't miss this FREE museum”

Found this museum by chance when the Musse D'Orsay was five hour wait. An amazing trip in military history and fabulous jewel encrusted medals.
