Look for the interesting Musee de l'Armee (Army Museum) and its collection of Middle Age armours.
Paris metro: Varenne station on line 13.
Louis XIV, the French King who built the Palace of Versailles, staged many wars in Europe.
In 1670, he commissioned Les Invalides in Paris, a 13 hectare hospital for wounded soldiers.
With their large church topped by a 107 meters high golden dome, Les Invalides are a masterpiece of French classical architecture.
We strongly recommend the interesting Army Museum at Les Invalides. Its collections of armors from the Middle Ages are unique. See web site. Its new section on the First and Second World War are moving.
You will find the Army Museum in the courtyard of Les Invalides. The admission fee of Les Invalides includes the admission to the Army Museum.
