La Haine des Clans exposition musée de l'armée


From 5 April to 30 July 2023, rediscover the fascinating history of the Wars of Religion that divided the kingdom of France and Navarre, at the Musée de l'Armée - les Invalides.
The second half of the 16th century was a period of growing instability in France. Civil unrest, religious wars, scandals... this key moment of the Renaissance had a profound impact on French history and called into question the royal power.

The consequences of the accidental death of Henri II, the assassination of Henri IV or the terrible massacre of Saint Bartholomew will no longer hold any secrets for you. Armour, portraits and archive documents retrace the lives of the De Guise, Condé and Montmorency families.

Musée de l'Armée - Invalides

At the heart of Paris, discover one of the greatest achievements of Louis XIV’s reign: the Hôtel national des Invalides. Recognizable in the Parisian skyline by its gilding, the famous Dome has been hosting since 1861 the monumental tomb of Napoleon I.
Built to house veterans and wounded soldiers, this prestigious location is now also the home of the musée de l’Armée, which possesses one of the largest collections of military history and art. Armors of the kings of France, weapons, uniforms, painting, photographs … Take a deep dive into History from the Middle Ages to the present day, with over 500 000 objects to admire.
Beyond the artefacts, interactive digital devices allow visitors to get a better understanding of some of the battles that forged our History, particularly in the rooms dedicated to the two world wars, as well as the Historial Charles de Gaulle.
