It is amazing the size of the military collection that steps you through the different eras in French history.
We spent over three hours here, €12 for adults children free.
Entry also provides access to the Domed Cathedral to view Napoleon’s tomb.
1 - Buy a pass. I've read several people complaining but with a bit of research you can get a pass that gives you entrance for everything.
2 - Napoleon's Tomb: Interesting but to be honest, you should just lose 10-20 minutes there. I've found...More

You must now pay 12 euros to see Napoleon’s Tomb which was previously free. The 12 euros also gives you entrance to the Les Invalides military museum but it’s not worth a visit. The exterior of the church where Napoleon’s Tomb is located is beautiful...More

If you are into military items/military history then this is the place. I think this must have the most extensive collection of items in the world. We spent 8 hours at full speed and did not see it all. I would recommend 2-3 days to...More
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and
politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.

I was just there last week. When we walked in we were asked for our tickets, which we gave them and they scanned them. Based on this, it did not seem to be free. Entry is only 12 euro for adults. The Army museum is neat to see especially the armory.
