Exhibition : What a story ! The Musée de l’Armée collections

Hôtel National des Invalides
How are museum collections created?
Accompanied with a tour guide, follow 100 years of the history of the Museum and its collections through the exhibition What a story! The Musée de l’Armée collections, that tells you the rich history, often unknown, sometimes unexpected, of the objects it keeps and their acquisition.

Through 90 objects, of different size, period and nature, it is the heart of the identity of the Musée de l’Armée that is questioned. More than an exhibition, a manifesto!

The objects presented will look back on 100 years of acquisition pointing out the specificities of the Museum, whose collections are constantly enriched through donations, transfers, purchases, legacies, donations, pre-emptions or deposits. Discover the origins of the Museum, founded in 1905, and follow the enrichment of its collections over time.
