We went to a performance at the very nice theater inside this office building. The building is huge and takes up a lot of real estate. The building is not very attractive in my opinion, brutal architecture. But the mission is important.
For lunch and relaxing time, the japanese garden is the best. The people are very nice. But you can just enter there if you know someone inside or in a tour. The restaurants inside are expensive so be aware of that.
i have a bias opinion sadly because i had an internship there so the rooms are filled with memories but the grey and somber aspect is beautiful not esthetically but because you understand why they built it the way they did, its to appreciate history

We showed up on a Wednesday with no prior appointment. After some discussion with office staff, we were allowed to join a Japanese student group, which was going to tour the entire facility for more than two hours. At the first possible moment, we expressed...More
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and
politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.
