I hadn’t been to the Army Museum located at Invalides in years but did a little exploring the other day. They’ve done some extensive remodeling and I couldn’t find some things I liked but it’s still interesting.
A statue of Napoleon overlooks the entry court of Invalides as you enter.
A painting of Napoleon when he set himself up as Emperor.
A coat and hat he often wore as well as his sleeping area set up in a tent. They used to have the room where he died set up too, as well as his death mask but they were no where to be seen.
Napoleon, not looking very happy, before he was sent in exile to Elba, although he was considered the ruler of the island and given money. He eventually left with a small army and tried to get in power again.
And here is his old horse, stuffed. They had his dog here as well once but it’s gone too.
His final resting place under the dome of Invalides.
