A lot of walking! I would recommend that you wear comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking involved. Went through security no hassle, was advised by a lovely security guard that we see napoleon's tomb first then the army museum. The tombs of Napoleon and the French army generals was something to behold. But the army museum has to be the best, different floors holding different, rich history. You can take your time going around. Took us 3 hours to see it all.

Well worth a visit if you are interested in history, especially from an armament view. From knights to Napolean and on to modern war. The buildings and displays are amazing. Need comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking.

+Enormous exhibit +Perfect layout and display +interactive and engaging +Faultless allround
