If you love history and heritage, then come and support the development of the Musée de l'Armée and forge a special link with the museum.

Crowd-funding projects

In 2015, as part of the operation to restore Vizir, the only horse belonging to Napoleon to have been preserved by taxidermists, the museum launched a crowd-funding campaign, "Saving Vizir, Napoleon's last horse". Thanks to the donations of 270 generous donors, restoration work was carried out in public, and Vizir was provided with a new display case, guaranteeing better conservation conditions.
