Musee de Armee
Love history, weapons, and medieval armor, then Les Invalides is the perfect place to visit on your visit to Paris. Within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower and Place de la Concorde, Les Invalides is a series of buildings containing a treasure trove of French military history from medieval times up until the 20th century. There's plenty of time to eat breakfast and enjoy a morning stroll in the park as the doors don't open until 10 a.m. A regular general admission to the museum exhibit is about 9 Euros while there is an additional cost of roughly 4 Euros to ensure you see the final resting place of Napoleon Bonaparte. Reading materials in English are available as most artifacts on display have captions only in French. While the museum may gravitate toward 18th and 19th century France, highlighting the achievements of Louis XIV and the rise of Napoleon, visitors will also come to see that the museum also has a wide collection of items from World War II, the Hundred Years' War, and even swords from the Viking age.
