About Hotel Des Invalides, Paris

This historic complex is a history or military lover’s paradise. The Sun King ordered the construction of Les Invalides as a retirement home for France’s disabled and impoverished veterans, but this large complex gained fame that far outstripped its noble intentions. The military paraded around the Court of Honour.  A chapel was established, which the residents were to attend daily. A separate chapel, the Eglise du Dome, a triumph of French Baroque architecture, was built for the sole use of the royal family. On 14th July 1789, it was stormed for muskets and cannons for use against the Bastille the same day.  Napoleon was entombed here, as were many of France’s other military leaders. Over three decades, a museum dedicated to the military was formed. Two more museums have been added since, and a doctor’s facility. Now too large to simply carry out it’s original purpose, the Invalides works to commemorate France’s wartime history.Make sure to check out the clever miniature reproductions of famous forts in the Relief Maps Museum.

  • Excellent museum. No crowds. Very extensive collection of medieval era, Napoleonic era, and the modern era's weaponry, armor, and other French war artifacts. Layout is great, staff is very friendly, and the exhibits are very informative. Napoleon's tomb is cool and all, but I found the exhibits way more interesting... especially the medieval ones and the WWI exhibit. It'll take about 4-6 hrs to see everything with the audioguide, so arrive early and plan on spending the entire day here if you want to get the most out of it. There are cafes and stuff inside as well.

  • 10 min wait. Pay for the audio tour-it explains a lot about the tomb area and some good info in the museum part. Allow 3 hours to get a good view. Really enjoyed this

  • Absolutely stunning Museum, the exhibit on Charles De Gaulle blew me away, amazing modern innovative museum with interactive features making history come alive, in a fantastic building too! Great exhibits on Napoleon and his era too, a great museum for Military and just French history!

  • Amazing museum! One of the best displays I have ever seen put together. My only regret is not allotting enough time to see everything.

  • Amazing historical journey through France's military past. The WW1 and WW2 exhibit was comprehensive and full of artifacts from the time. Napoleon's tomb is very impressive too.
