We booked this while out sightseeing in Paris. Booking was quick and our tickets were seamlessly added to the app to use. Tip: our 17 year old daughter qualified for free entry, but you must go to the coffee/bookstore area at the location to obtain a ticket for entry AND show proof of their age (we used her passport). My husband, a veteran, absolutely loved the museum and all of the artifacts. Napoleon's tomb location was absolutely beautiful! So happy we added this to our itinerary while in Paris!

Our experience at the war museum Les Invalides was very emotional and impactful. Shivers down the spine and a lot to process afterwards. Very impressive and educational, a rich and overwhelming collection with a strong message. War is brutal and meaningless and brings out the worst in us. It is of extreme importance that the new generations feel our historys deep pain to prevent future devastation and to understand the way of the world. Highly recommended for educational and self developmental reasons, not entertainment.

Very convenient to buy the ticket via the app. It is the same price as the ticket office at the museum, but you cut the line. Om Mondays, most museums are closed in Paris except this one, so it will be busier and it will save you time. The museum is beautiful and it is 100% worthy to visit Napoleon's thumb.
