    3 floors of an impressive exhibition of the French forces since the medieval and almost to the present day. Too bad there are no signage and explanations in English. The person who runs the place is very kind and friendly. 5 Euro entrance fee. Opens only at 2:00 pm. There is no lift.

  • "Worth a visit"

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by smackinlay (Bordeaux, France) on 17/10/2020

    This gem is tucked away down a small street but opens up into a huge collection of artefacts of France’s long military tradition. We enjoyed the Napoleonic period especially.
