It’s small and it’s very late (said trip to les Invalides occurred not this past Saturday but the Saturday before), but I feel that remaining steadfastly slothful is the best way of demonstrating my commitment to enjoying my two weeks off.
Picture of the day.
Not quite picture of the day, but undoubtedly a close second.
Prior to this visit, this edifice had been obscured by scaffolding. The restoration seems to have been worth it, though.
The museum has opened its previously-closed les cabinets insolites (“cabinets of curiosities,” more or less), which includes musical instruments.
I like the color on this one.
Further curiosities included elaborate artillery models…
…and a room full of tin soldiers.
This doesn’t seem safe.
The dioramas (not the proper term, but I’m drawing a blank at the moment) were pretty neat, too.
