“Lovely little museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

Really lovely little museum in what was once a beautiful theatre which is sadly going to ruin. Informative information in both french and english. Good video presentation and well worth a visit to pay your respects. At 2.70 euros each very good value. Be careful though we almost missed being able to go as just stayed over on a monday night. Only open in the evening from 2 to 6 and not open on a tuesday.

“Very well maintained”

A must to see, even if it is only to pay our respects to the ones that gave their life to have a free world

Very good CD presentation. The derelict theatre is a wonderful building that needs restoring.

“Emotional memorial”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Located in an old theatre, which was built in approx. 1814 - this small memorial is really a must when in Dieppe. A shame that there is no cash to restore this beautiful historical theatre....

“Loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Didnt know what to expect, knew of the Dieppe raid as I am a history buff so seeing this was a welcome surprise. I also suggest you make the trip just outside the town to the Canadian Dieppe Cemetary, its very moving.
