What a History! looks back on 100 years of acquisitions at the Musée de l’Armée. From donations and transfers, to purchases, bequests, restitutions, and deposits, the collection continued to grow.

The museum even remained open during the First World War and its collections expanded with many objects connected to the conflict.

In 1921 the provisions of the Treaty of Versailles resulted in a large influx of objects from the Franco-Prussian War of 1870–1871, as well as WWI. At the end of the Second World War, thanks to several recovery missions carried out in Germany, the Museum took back works which had been confiscated by the German occupier.

Musée de l'Armee

4.7 / 5 (418 reviews)

The Musée de l'Armee is part of a complex of buildings, home to museums and monuments, all relating to France's military history. A visit provides a fascinating look at prestigious old weapons, uniforms and armour. Napoleon Bonaparte's gilded tomb is also here, so be sure to pay your respects.

The Musée de l'Armee is located on Rue de Grenelle, at Paris's Les Invalides. It's a great spot in Paris’ 7th arrondissement, near Champs-de-Mars and the French National Assembly.

One of the world's largest and most authoritative museums, the Louvre's magnificent classical silhouette (and funky glass pyramid) are well-known attractions in the center of Paris. But as nice as the Louvre is from the outside, its real magic is in the inside. The Louvre's collection ranges from Mesopotamian, Egyptian, and Greek antiquities, with masterpieces by Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Rembrandt. With 35,000 works of art (all created before 1848), it's a big, and worthwhile, commitment. The Louvre is one of Paris's Big Three museums; the other two are the Musée d'Orsay (with Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art from the years 1848-1914) and the Centre Pompidou (with 20th-century works created after 1914).

Housed in the stunning Beaux-Arts style Gare d'Orsay railway station, The Musée d'Orsay is home to significant and stunning works by painters including Gauguin, Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, and Van Gogh. It's widely considered to be one of the most culturally important museums in the world. Its entire collection is from the period 1848-1914, including many of the most significant Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings ever created. Chronologically, the works come after those of the neighboring Louvre, and before the collection of the nearby Pompidou Centre.

This luxurious 17th-century French palace is a masterclass in excess. It has hundreds of acres of magnificently landscaped gardens, more than 2,300 rooms, a large collection of French Renaissance art, an opera house, and a 75-meter-long hall of mirrors lined with priceless statues and busts. There are no half-measures in its conception or execution – it even has more than 1,200 fireplaces! It's one of the most visited attractions in France, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take your pick of Palace of Versailles tickets and tours – you won't regret it!
