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 exhibitions included in this ticket:

From 19 May 2021 to 31 October 2021
To celebrate the bicentenary of the death of Napoleon, the Musée de l’Armée is proposing to examine the major themes surrounding the death of Napoleon by switching perspectives and by calling in new scientific disciplines (archaeology, medicine, chemistry) in order to complete already known historical sources.

Napoleon? Encore!
From 19 May 2021 to 13 February 2022
This contemporary art tour evokes the figure of Napoleon as well as his legacy. Thirty contemporary artists received carte blanche to question this symbolic and historical figure.
