    This museum is right across the street from the famous Orsay Museum in Paris, France. We were not charged admission here, and an audioguide was for free but my spouse had to leave his passport or identity card to obtain it. This stuff was very well documented. Nearly everything was clearly marked. This building is okay for disabled people (accessible, there is an elevator) but this would not be a place suitable for most children. They would not be able to see many of the items in the cases if they are small. I don't like military things but this was still a very interesting visit. Lots of strange iconography here.

    We had planned on seeing another museum, but the line was very long in front, so we had a plan B and this was the place. If you want to buy souvenirs or a snack, this area has a lot of stuff open on Sunday, which is rare for Paris.

    When you sightsee in Paris, leave plenty of time for travel, and have an alternate plan in mind. The lines at the Orsay Museum were insanely long, yet this museum right across the street had almost no one in it and there was no fee charged for entry! The help in this museum was also very friendly and professional. When the receptionist heard me speaking English, even though she didn't speak English, she right away offered an audioguide in English. I made four clips of this visit and the other three will be over on YouTube on my CUTECATFAITH and SLOBOMOTION channels. I recommend this place as an interesting alternative. I've dined in the nabe before, also, and it was very good. This is right on the River Seine and very scenic, also.
