The Army Museum Reviews
Surement pas le musée le plus connus mais a voir sans faute. Prix d'entrée raisonnable et collection très complétè je n'ai pas regretter mon arrêt a ce musée je j'ai découvert par hasard en me promena... more »Surely not the best-known Museum but see without fault. Reasonable entry price and collection very complete I have not regret my stop was this museum I I discovered by chance as I was walking was my 1st day in Paris. There was no crowd when I went there what makes the visit more enjoyable in themselves sublime architectural decorations.
ナポレオンのお墓があるアンヴァリッドの敷地内にあります。中世の鎧や武器がたくさん展示されており、興味のある人は面白いと思います。軍事博物館の他にナポレオンのお墓やその他の展示も多いので、ゆっくり見てると時間がなくなるし、とても疲れます。サラッと見るにはいいかな。 more »Napoleon's grave in the grounds of the Hotel des Invalides. I think people are interested in, and display a lot of medieval armor and weapons. Military Museum of Napoleon's Tomb and other exhibits, so slowly and runs out of time and I am very tired. To see and do?
I truly LOVE this museum! I spent over 4 hours exploring the massive collection of exhibits and artifacts connected to the long epoch of France's Military History. From Napoleon up through both World Wars the French Army Museum has a truly massive collection of historical weaponry and artifacts. But the Museum still flows well and has a ton of interactive displays. I could have easily gone back for 2 more days and still never finished exploring! The tickets are around 8 Euros which is awesome too!
This place is amazing. Loads of history, well conserved artifacts. The museum is gigantic and you need more than one day to visit it. I especially love the way it’s organized in sections and exhibits. The most fascinating part is the Second World War one. The only downside is that it isn’t exactly very well protected and there’s not a lot of staff. Very easy to get lost in it.
