  • Very Amazing Military and World War museum. Great big Historical place. Entrance is Free. But there are Some Paid access inside the museum. Army officials there are So Kind, Nice and Helping. Very popular Destination in Paris not much far from Eiffel Tower. Busy in Summer though.
  • This is a must see yet I did not have enough time as I would've liked to. The start of the WW1 to the end of the WW2 was explained in detail. Very informative. The exhibitions are beautiful. Nepoleon's tomb is def a must. The uniform are impressive, the hardware of battle equipment is astonishing for that day and age. The Soldiers Church is a respected place of peace behind the Napoleon's tomb and beautifully build and completed in 1679. Rich in history.
