Better than the palace of versailles. Much more interesting and more to see!! Low crowd since it is less popular but from the same Century.

This is a large museum housing many items from WWI and WWII. Also, It houses Napoleon's tomb in the gold domed section. There are uniforms, munitions, tactical information, many informative photos, and much more. Certainly worth a visit. They take the Paris Museum Pass.

Our main visit to this museum was to see Napoleon’s Tomb. The exhibit was beautiful and huge! I had never seen anything like it. The grounds of the museum is very large, plenty of exhibits so allow several hours if you want to see everything.

A huge complex of buildnings. I've mainly seen the Invalid dome, housing the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte. You got to set off plenty of time for this activity.
