Picasso and War
Now on - Jul 28, 2019

How were Picasso's friends, creative output, and career affected by war? What prompted him to make his first public political statement? In Picasso and War, his diverse works and personal archives are shown alongside a selection of press articles, photographs and objects drawing on the various realities and conflicts that influenced his work.

The Spanish Civil War (1936–1939) affected Picasso deeply, and his most famous painting, Guernica, emerged in response to the aerial bombardment of the city. Don't miss the life-size replica here at Musée de l'Armée.

Paris's Army Museum (Musée de l'Armée) is one of the three largest arms museums in the world, and home to one of the biggest military history and art collections on the planet. None other than Napoleon Bonaparte has been resting here since 1861, in his tomb. Get priority entrance into this military-minded collection of arms, armor, and art.

The Artillery Museum has a vast collection of artillery pieces collected during the Revolution. Pose beside a cannon for a selfie and imagine Napoleon doing the same. Well, he would've, if he could've - he was known for being a bit vain.

The Dôme des Invalides, which contains Napoleon I's tomb, was built between 1677 and 1706 and its 110-meter golden dome stretches up into the Paris skies. His son and brothers rest here too, and the laurel crown and inscriptions represent the Empire's greatest victories.

In the Old Department you'll see armor and weapons from the 13th to the 17th century. Items related to major figures of French history, from Francis I to Louis XIII, will help you imagine what it might have been like to be at war during those times. Likewise, in the Modern Department, revisit the bloodiest battles, snoop inside the life of soldiers and see how technologies have changed throughout the years.

Get priority entrance to one of Paris's most popular museums, and get a front-row seat for some of history's bloodiest encounters.

Insider tip

There is a really good cafe inside, serving great coffee and a selection of crepes, pastries and hot food at very affordable prices. It's perfect for a break in the middle of a visit - the museum is so large that it's difficult to see everything in one go!

Lighting was poor, audio was intermittent, organization of exhibits and their interpretation of them lacking in some areas. While we ran out of time so only saw half the museum, I was surprised by the less-than dull effort put into what could have been a world-class exhibition.

History, knowledge, technology, all in one place. Do not hesitate to buy a ticket to visit the museum of the army, as well as the tomb of Napoleon, my recommendation to use this platform to buy tickets online and avoid long lines.
