Invalides is a station on lines 8 and 13 of the Paris Métro and RER in the 7th arrondissement. It gets its name from L'Hôtel national des Invalides (The National Residence of the Invalids) nearby. The station opened in 1913 as part of the original section of Line 8 between Beaugrenelle (now Charles Michels on line 10) and Opéra.
Les Invalides is a complex of buildings in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, France, which incorporates museums and monuments associated with the military history of France, as well as a hospital and a retirement home for war veterans - which was what it was designed for originally. The complex contains the Musée de l'Armée, the military museum of the Army of France, the Musée des Plans-Reliefs, and the Musée d'Histoire Contemporaine. Napoleon Bonaparte is one of the French military heroes buried here.
