Musée de l'Armée

This beautiful building began as adjacent chapels built so that hospitalized soldiers and King Louis XIV could hear the same mass while sitting in separate chapels. It is now France's miltary museum and contains the tomb of Emperor Napoleon I.

The golden-domed chapel, built for Louis XIV. He moved to the Palace of Versailles shortly after it was completed and almost never used it.

When Louis XIV complained that the artwork of the dome couldn't been seen from the ceiling inside, the artist came back and repainted it, giving the illusion of a dome shape despite actually being flat.

The museum has countless displays of France's military history through the ages.

There are also a lot of artistic depictions of Charles De Galle.
