Become a patron of the Musée de l'Armée!

The Invalides, an outstanding site

The Hôtel des Invalides was founded in 1670 by King Louis XIV as a hospital for wounded, sick or elderly soldiers. It is a magnificent example of classical architecture right at the heart of Paris. Today it is a museum but also a memorial site, containing Saint-Louis des Invalides church. Beneath the prestigious Dome, the church houses the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte.

The Musée de l’Armée, a flagship for the French armed forces

Inside the prestigious building, the Musée de l’Armée preserves and displays one of the richest collections of military history in the world with almost 500,000 pieces, from the Bronze Age to the 21st century. Its aim is to provide visitors from France and abroad, children and adults, with a better understanding of military history and more broadly, of the history of France.

A mission promoting citizenship

Alongside the numerous advantages in terms of communication and public relations, supporting the museum means associating your name with a landmark site embodying values of citizenship and with a focus on social commitment, fraternity and high standards.

The Musée de l’Armée is a place where each company, foundation or private individual can find a patronage project that can help them take part in the museum's development.
