canon at the french army museum

2/10  French Army Museum: military models

Originally a hospital for disabled soldiers set up by Louis XIV, Les Invalides now houses a military museum, as well as the tomb of Napoleon. The collection of weapons, armour and artillery models span seven spaces, which are divided chronologically or in themes, so you can pick out favourites. The audio guide’s interactive trails are designed specifically for children and will help bring the museum to life. Perfect for kids that love history!

Facilities: There’s a café on site for snacks and a lift for buggy access.
