Army Museum (Musee de l'Armee) Tours

Created in 1795 in the aftermath of the French Revolution, the Army Museum is fittingly located at Les Invalides in Paris, a complex of buildings containing museums and monuments relating to the military history of France. Its emblematic golden Dôme des Invalides has become one of Paris’ most iconic landmarks over time. The site was formerly used as a retirement home for war veterans, and is the resting home and burial site of France’s famous war heroes, including Napoleon Bonaparte – undeniably the museum’s most sought-after attraction.

The Army Museum contains some of the world's most prestigious old weapons and armour collections. It consists of seven main spaces and departments, with collections encompassing several eras, from antiquity through the 20th century: cannons, crown collections, swords, armors, works of art, artefacts from the feudal and royal armies, luxury weapons and privates' uniforms, including Napoleon’s iconic bicorne hat and most legendary portrait.

Practical Info

Musée de l'Armée is located in Paris’ 7th arrondissement, near Champs-de-Mars and the French National Assembly. It is easily accessible by public transit, with metro stops Varenne, la Tour-Maubourg, Invalides and École-Militaire within walking distance. The Army Museum opens daily at 10 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m. (November 1-March 31) or 6 p.m. (April 1-October 31). Entry costs €9.5 for adults and is free of charge for those under 18.
