  • The collections of the Museum of the EMPÉRI plunge into the Rapture the faint-hearted at the military trappings. They describe the history of the French armed forces since the reign of LOUIS 14 until 1918. The beautiful architecture of the rooms showcases the exposed 10,000 coins: uniforms, harnesses, flags, decorations, weapons, firearms, guns, paintings, drawings, engravings and white. The characters on foot and on horseback illustrate this military past and especially the Napoleonic period. Low admission with discounted for children and lovely bookstore to buy books and objects; His visit during a visit to SALON DE PROVENCE.

  • Taking advantage of a passage to the castle with a Sunday family, out of curiosity we went to see if the Museum was open. Staff were very friendly and more like all the first Sunday of the month the visit is free! The opportunity to discover a very diverse and very large collection in chronological terms. For young children, it's may be long but you can make them find interest all along. A must see for a tour of Los Angeles over a few days (a WE for example)
