This museum of war-planning topographical 3D maps/models has been mentioned in previous posts. Ian from Forgotten Weapons/Forgotten History did a short video tour. He only highlights a few of the models, but they look incredible.

Check out his firearms videos if you haven't before, they are always informative about history, gunsmithing, and firing mechanisms even if you aren't interested in that particular firearm.

Very cool! I've heard about this part of the Invalides and seen photos in books. Many thanks.

It is also worth mentioning that there are a further set of 15 Plan Relief in the Fine Arts Museum in Lille. link

And if you are in Lille at the weekend you should also check out the weapons in the Museum of Lille's Gunners. link
