    We visited on a slow day, so there wasn’t a line to cut. Paying the premium to cut a line wasn’t worth it in our case.

    An excellent look into the history of Napoleon and his final resting place. November was cold, but there was not a line.

    If you're into this kind of thing, worth a visit. If you aren't interested in WWII history or the history of the military i.n France - skip. We enjoyed, lots of great WWII memorabilia and information.

    Last time I visited the Tomb of Napoleon was over 50 years ago but it is still an inspiring destination. It was our first visit to the Paris Army Museum which is interesting,especially the two world wars, but the overall signage could be improved. We thought it was a little light on US contributions during both wars.

    My husband and I agree with many of the other reviews. This is a worthwhile attraction to visit, but the skip the line tickets were not necessary. There was no line at 10:00 am on 12/23/17. It took us about 2 hours to see everything.

    You better get early as the amount of amazing things on display will need several hours, let alone saluting the great Napoleon in his resting place

    This museum is definitely worth a visit - but no need to pay for skip the line - there was no line and it was August! If you are interested in French and European history - this is the place for you. The tomb building is magnificent and its worth paying a few dollars for the audio guide. Angelina's cafe offer some delectable treats in a courtyard which was very peaceful.

    There weren't really any queues that I can recall to enter either the Army museum or the Tomb of Napoleon but in any event, it's a good way to book ahead just in case they were!
