The buildings house the Musée de l'Armée, the military museum of the Army of France, the Musée des Plans-Reliefs and the Musée d'Histoire Contemporaine, as well as the burial site of some of France's war heroes: Entering under the dome of the Hôtel, visitors look on the remains of Napoleon in an arena surrounded by magnificent statues paying a chill homage to the Emperor.
