The Dôme des Invalides, which contains Napoleon I’s tomb, was built between 1677 and 1706 and its 110-meter golden dome stretches up into the Paris skies. His son and brothers rest here too, and the laurel crown and inscriptions represent the Empire’s greatest victories.

At the Department of Ancient Arms and Armour you’ll see armor and weapons from the 13th to the 17th century. Items related to major figures of French history, from Francis I to Louis XIII, will help you imagine what it might have been like to be at war during those times. Likewise, in the Modern Department, revisit battles, snoop inside the life of soldiers and see how technologies have changed throughout the years.
