View exquisite military pieces spanning from antiquity through the 20th century at The Army Museum. This museum curates the third largest arms collection in the world. Artifacts and contemporary pieces include suits of armor, swords, cannons, guns, and a tank from the 1940s. Learn the history of several wars through the stories told by everyday objects--like postcards and letters from the battlefields of World War I and World War II. Hunt down all 24 significant treasures from the Middle Ages through World War II. One of the treasures is the sword used by Francis I during the 16th century, another is a burgonet from the 1550s worn by Henry II, and a third treasure is the iconic bicorn hat worn by Napoléon I.

Very interesting for the whole family: young and old. Another look at history. A moment, interesting, enriching, informative, enjoyable.
Very Amazing Military and World War museum. Great big Historical place. Entrance is Free. But there are Some Paid access inside the museum. Army officials there are So Kind, Nice and Helping. Very popular Destination in Paris not much far from Eiffel Tower. Busy in Summer though.
This is a must see yet I did not have enough time as I would've liked to. The start of the WW1 to the end of the WW2 was explained in detail. Very informative. The exhibitions are beautiful. Nepoleon's tomb is def a must. The uniform are impressive, the hardware of battle equipment is astonishing for that day and age. The Soldiers Church is a respected place of peace behind the Napoleon's tomb and beautifully build and completed in 1679. Rich in history.
