  • Reading some comments reinforces my view that this unusual Museum is not intended for the general public. Student of history, including military, I personally was delighted with this visit. It should be understood that these are the reliefs of time plan (they aren't naturally more brand-new, and are not intended to be beautiful) military (so strong places, many of which are unknown, go your way if you want to see a mini Eiffel Tower, this is not the France miniature). The collection is impressive in quantity (I however was surprised not to see the France of fortification of the East) and quality. Some pieces are enormous, especially for that time. The atmosphere is nice, little noise and the lighting highlights the parts. Only regret maybe, too few panels putting into perspective these works (historical context, stories of battles, etc.)

  • Les Invalides building several facilities seem to be, but here was one of them. I walked in because it puts it in a museum pass. Some one is dark, such as topographic maps, but I wasn't interested so quickly around and came out.

  • As I doubt I will ever get to tour the old forts that protected France, the opportunity to see these very detailed models was great. The amount of effort and skill required to create each model is extraordinary, to be sure. Yes, they are at the top of four flights of stairs. The good news is that there are other great museums to see on each floor on the way up, so the trip can be made in segments. Enjoy!
  • Everyone interested in military history should go there! Tons of incredibly interesting items related to war. You can see how much effort humanity put into killing itself.
  • Just beautiful structure and historic
  • A must see if you are visiting the museum - gives a great insight into the topology of Paris
  • Very nice place

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
