When I was a kid, my favorite museum in Paris was definitely the Navy Museum (Musée de la Marine). First the location is great, on top of the Trocadéro, facing the Eiffel Tower on the right Bank. Then inside the Museum, you can see gigantic models of sail boats, some of them several hundred years old (the model and the boat it represent were sometimes made at the same time!). You have also huge wooden sculptures that were the figurehead on the ships. There is also a real rowing yacht that belonged to Napoleon, gold and white, it's really something worth seeing!
The National Maritime Museum in Paris is located on the right wing of Palais Chaillot. It displays more than a thousand ocean-related exhibits collected since the 19th century, including a large number of exquisite ship models and navigational instruments of various eras.
For boat model enthusiasts, this is a paradise. But for most of the friends who are not interested, it’s not bad to walk around and watch the flowers. In the future, you will feel more immersive when watching nautical-related movies. What's more, here is the best place to take a photo with the Eiffel Tower as soon as you go out, no matter how you go there.
People who like the history of nautical history and ship history are recommended here. There are not many visitors, and most of them are men, but the information is very comprehensive, and there are many physical exhibits here.
The location is very good, opposite the tower. Not many people came, the pavilion is very beautiful, you can quietly see the history of navigation. In addition to the specific ship, there are many old objects and models on the second floor, including the engineering model of the Obelisk of Place de la Concorde brought to Paris, various ship models, and even a physical object of a carrier aircraft dashboard!
In contrast, the domestic construction of museums in various military services is still blank.
Sad to say the museum is closed for refurbishment which was a great disappointment as I have been working for the last 5 weeks in Paris in the very building - but no visit.
Located in the middle of the trocadero is this medium sized naval museum. Lots of nautical history and items of interest on display. Best metro station is Trocadero.
Its just in the middle of Trocadero, so its easy to visit and spend an hour or two. Wonderful collection of boats!
an excellent way to spend a couple of hours...the museum has lots of large scale models of French Naval ships from the mid 17th century through to modern warships.
There is a whole room of paintings dedicated to the French Navy and their help during the Revolution. Amazing. Anyone interested in Naval history, fishing, etc will find this small Museum a marvel. I...
