Musée de l’Armée




The golden dome of Les Invalides is usually easy to spot around the 7th arrondimsent, standing out amongst the trees and the rooftops. Here, is the Musée de l’Armée- the national military museum of France. Open since 1905, the permanent collections are displayed chronologically, with a presentation of military and weapons from Antiquity to the end of the Second World War.

Inside the golden dome itself you can find the tomb of Emperor Napoleon I. There is an incredible amount of military history from all around the world here. From the armor worn by princes for ceremonies, or the armor used in battle, the impressive display will transport you back into a medieval time.
