In the middle of the Hundred Years War, on 25 October 1415, the Battle of Agincourt marked the end of the feudal army. A century later, in 1515 the artillery of Francis I played a decisive role in the victory against the Swiss pikemen in Marignano. In those hundred years, the armies, tactics and military institutions had seen radical changes and technical innovation.
Through an outstanding collection of artefacts from French and foreign institutions - artillery, armour and manuscripts - discover the great battles that made history in the 15th and 16th centuries, and meet figures like Joan of Arc, the Knight Bayard or Francis I, whose legend still resonates in the collective imagination. A fun and spectacular journey through time accompanied by recreations and numerous multimedia displays, to rediscover the art of war from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance.
