  • Wonderful (and massive collection) of items relating to the France and the French military. It would be easy to spend the entire day here. We focussed on the permanent collection related to 1871...

  • A wonderful and huge, and I mean very extensive, museum of French military history. I cannot overstate the size of this place, I spent four hours in the wings covering the two world wars alone. And there is so much more to see! The exhibit titles are in several languages, but the full explanation is all in French. You can get audio guides but I just read the signs as best I could. Don't forget to see the Tomb of Napoleon while you're here, it's pretty unforgettable.
  • Holy and strong, please take a look at what he clock at each building, there are special , classic and historical. You will need to buy the ticket if you would like to tour upstairs. Or you can also take a walk here and there are many rabbits in the grass don't forget to appreciate them.
