Tour Description

Discover more about this tour

During our 2 hour guided tour of the Musée de l’Armée, you’ll explore a dazzling collection of artifacts, videos and displays and learn about how both World Wars shaped France and French identity.


Our small groups (no more than 8 people per tour) ensure that you’ll have plenty of time to engage with our certified guides, as they walk you through the Musée de l’Armée and the key role France played in the World Wars.

Your guide will start by outlining the people and events that helped launch World War I, including Bismarck and the Franco-Prussian War, and the assassination of Franz Ferdinand. Along the way, you’ll see equipment, uniforms, weapons and other artifacts that were used on the battlefield, original footage of the atrocities that took place before the Treaty of Versailles and even the train car where the armistice was signed.

Next, you’ll explore Hitler’s ascent to power in Germany and the lead-up to World War II. Your guide will discuss the evacuation of Dunkirk and the Occupation of Paris, and game-changing figures like De Gaulle and Pétain, all while pointing out eye-opening relics of the war. Ultimately, this tour is a deep dive into the individual and collective acts of courage that enabled an Allied victory and the miraculous survival of Paris.
