Very Amazing Military and World War museum. Great big Historical place. Entrance is Free. But there are Some Paid access inside the museum. Army officials there are So Kind, Nice and Helping. Very popular Destination in Paris not much far from Eiffel Tower. Busy in Summer though.
This is a must see yet I did not have enough time as I would've liked to. The start of the WW1 to the end of the WW2 was explained in detail. Very informative. The exhibitions are beautiful. Nepoleon's tomb is def a must. The uniform are impressive, the hardware of battle equipment is astonishing for that day and age. The Soldiers Church is a respected place of peace behind the Napoleon's tomb and beautifully build and completed in 1679. Rich in history.
Nice French army museum with a lot of detail and plenty to see. Had a lot of history and specific details around Napoleon. Well worth the 12 euros as we spent a while going through it all.
Beautiful museum! There is a WW1 and WW2 exhibition. The only drawback is that the signs are not very efficient so you might go around in circles a bit. Make sure to ask where things are if you are not sure. The General ticket gives you access to Napoleon’s tomb as well. Kid friendly, open Saturday and Sunday
Amazing to see the Napoleon tomb, and the collections of arms and armour is amazing. At 10€ entry it is ok too as the museum is definitely worth that. The WW2 area is well laid out and methodical but not so much the area leading up to and including WW1. Also the armour and weapons area had very little info and it was not well labelled. Almost perfect but not quite hence the 4 stars.
