Musée de l'armée (Paris)


The Musée de l'Armée was established in 1905. The museum is the home to the Tomb of Napoleon. The museum covers army and artillery antiques from ancient times, weapons used during the French Revolution, through to displays far more modern up until the 20th century. The Musée de l'Armée certainly is housed in the most appropriate place, as Les Invalides in Paris was originally ordered to be built by King Louis XIV as a hospital and home for disabled soldiers.

The Musée de l'Armée comprises the Church Saint-Lois des Invalides, L'Eglise du Dome, and the military glory pantheon. Due to several years of renovation, the museum now also has space dedicated to World War II, Général de Gaulle's actions, Free France and Fighting France.
