This museum was instructive in the role of the Vichy government in WW II...this building was Gestapo headquarters during the war, which was creepy. You were brought back to life during the war, with many mementos, photos, a basement room made to resemble life during...More

Wewalked the mile or so to the museum, got our English speaking audiophones and had a moving trip through WWII history. The audioguide did not cover all the bits of exhibit material, but you got the essence of the story, with added things to view....More

This exhibit was very moving. Kudos for getting eyewitness accounts as the clock ticks down. The people highlighted in this museum are the real deal: true heroes and heroines that risked it all knowing they might not live to see the fruits of their labor....More

A very thorough and well laid out record of Lyon's involvement in the 39- 45 war from the point of view of the resistance and the German treatment of both the resistance fighters and the Jewish population. Sometimes it is very harrowing but this all...More

I was generally aware of the French Resistance - but the visit to the museum provided a lot of supplementary information. We got the audio since all signage was in French. I think they could have done a little bit better in tying in the...More

Bitterly disappointed, which is self inflicted. All exhibits in French- no English anywhere. Audio assistance in English available, however, need to produce passport or drivers licence. We purposely do not carry passports around the streets, and travelling exclusively by train no need for licence. I...More
