History collections from the French armies
The Brunon brothers made Château de l’Empéri into a museum: Musée de l’Emperi.
The Raoul and Jean Brunon collections at Château de l’Empéri became the property of the Army Museum (Hôtel National des Invalides, Paris) in 1967.
The collection on show at Château de l’Empéri is one of the best collections of French military history in the world.
Its Napoleon section is its crowning glory.
Visitors go on a trip back in time through French history from the reign of King Louis XIV to the First World War (1914-1918).
The outstanding and rich collection also includes unusual or exceptional items.
