What to expect

Located right in the heart of Paris in the prestigious setting of the Hôtel national des Invalides, the museum is home to one of the largest military history and art collections in the world, and offers a unique overview of the history of France.

A remarkable site full of history, the Hôtel des Invalides was founded by Louis XIV to house veterans and wounded soldiers. It now forms the unique, prestigious setting for the Musée de l’Armée.

The museum's collections contain over 500.000 pieces, covering a period from the Middle Ages up to the present day and following a newly designed educational route: the armor and weapons of the Kings of France, swords, cannons, uniforms, paintings, photographs, the personal effects of important figures such as Françis I, Louis XIV and Charles de Gaulle, plus the Dome church, which since 1861 has been home to the monumental tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte, its golden dome reaching up into the skies of Paris at over 110 meters high.

This ticket gives access to the permanent collections, the Dome Church, Tomb of Napoleon, the Saint-Louis Cathedral, the Charles de Gaulle Monument, the Museum of Relief Maps and the Museum of the Order of the Liberation.

Temporary exhibition included in this ticket:

From 17 September 2020 to 10 January 2021
France in 1940

The Musée de l’Armée is presenting an exhibition that recreates the atmosphere of that dreadful year and its consequences on the people of France after the shock of defeat. Step into the shoes and the daily lives of French women and men in 1940, prisoners of war, interned people, refugees, Resistance fighters and residents of the different areas. Discover the radio broadcasts they listened to, the cinema newsreels they watched, the press, posters and pamphlets they read.
