This little museum has a wealth of fascinating stories, with the local heros placed in the national and international context of the time. The staff are enthusiastic and friendly, and since it's run by the local government, entrance is free. WARNING: some of the photographs on the second floor are not suitable for children. I took my 15 year old... More

A lost of information about deportation and not so much about the resistance. We were given an explanatory leaflet in English which helped us to put things into perspective. However our visit was spolit by a group of teenage schoolchildren, who had no respect for their history

This is a little gem of a museum on the resistance during WWII especially around Toulouse. Lots of cases/items with comments in French, with no translation, but you still can understand a lot. They do have a general handout in English, but it doesn't explain the cases. Another room shows relics from the deportation camps and the badges that different... More

This is an underground passage through the story of French resistance fighters in WW2. All commentaries are in French, no translations, but worth a visit.

I think this is a great museum. It's very informative and tells the story of the occupation and deportation of people and also informs of the resistance movement. A lot to take in so give your self some time. English speakers ask for the notes in English. Well worth the time taken to see it.

The previous four reviews explain a lot about this museum that there's not a lot for me to add. I did have difficulty finding it, partly because it was just off the map provided by the Tourism Office and Alles des Demoiselles heads off at a funny angle after the roundabout adjacent to the Jardin des Plantes. And no. 52... More

It is unfortunately true that if you don't read French this little museum will be difficult to understand. I say this as a person who speaks French and who doesn't find the lack of English at all surprising or worthy of criticism. When was the last time you saw signs in French or even Spanish at American or UK attractions?... More

This museum is about 20 minutes walk from central Toulouse and details the story of resistance to the Nazis in and around Toulouse in WW2. The friendly staff will introduce you to the museum layout and will provide an English summary booklet describing the main exhibits, which are on the second floor. Some 30 separate display cabinets describe the story... More

Very interesting visit to this museum. Everything was in French, but if you ask at the entry, you will be given a handout in English. Have been teaching our children (10 and 12) about the French Resistance and this was very useful. It is free, and remember it does close for a 90 minute lunch break so plan your visit... More
