We had close to four hours to spend in the museum and it wasn't enough time. So much to see; so well done; and the staff was so helpful.

The care of the place, the details to read and learn about French history and culture, the creativity with which visitors are invited to discover curious facts, the kindness of the workers. Vive la France!

Napoleons tomb and the war history artifacts were highlights of the tour. The cathedral where Napoleon's tomb is was quite ornate.

These tickets are valid until 27 May, 2025.

One of the top three armaments museums worldwide, the Army Museum in Paris is also home to one of the largest collections of military artifacts and history on the planet. In his tomb, none other than Napoleon Bonaparte has lain since 1861. Receive first access to this collection of weapons, armor, and artwork aimed towards the military.

Napoleon I's tomb is housed within the 110-meter golden dome of the Dôme des Invalides, a structure that was constructed between 1677 and 1706 and reaches far into the Paris sky. The inscriptions and laurel crown commemorate the Empire's greatest triumphs, and his son and brothers also rest here.

You can find weapons and armor from the 13th to the 17th centuries in the Old Department. Artifacts featuring well-known French historical personalities, such as Louis XIII and Francis I, can help you envision what it might have been like to be at war in those eras. Similarly, explore the most violent conflicts, peek into soldiers' lives, and discover how technology has evolved over time in the Modern Department.

The visit to Historial Charles de Gaulle will allow you to experience an interactive multimedia space dedicated to the man the monument has been erected for. The next stop, at the Musee des Plans-Reliefs will allow you to have a look at an assortment of military models. Finally, the Museum of the Order of the Liberation will introduce you to the heroes of the Legion of Honor of France. Military and history buffs should not miss this journey.
