Spent a lovely Sunday here soaking up the gorgeous setting, exploring the nearby village church and cemetery at Plesidy, eating a long lazy 4 course lunch on the deck overlooking the lake, and then touring the small but very well done museum.

We were early for the restaurant, so ambled along the lakeside, watching three sets of fishermen hoping for trout. Then rode back 3 kilometers to the huge church and beautifully crowded and flower laden cemetery. Sad to see so many names from the same families inscribed on the church wall.

Back for fabulous lunch at L'Auberge de L'Etang Neuf ... scallops salad, yummy big beef with vegs, cheese plate, and profiteroles...heavens! Agree with previous reviewer...great value and high quality. Husband and wife owners were friendly and gave great service. They each spoke some English with us and were delightful. Ate lakeside in the sunshine for a perfect setting.
(A note to a previous reviewer from Jersy: it is quite traditional in Brittany in France have daily menu on blackboards!!)

Then next door to the museum. Small, but lots of well presented info and personal stories. ALL with English as well as French! Helpful staff lady at front.

Videos of men and women who were there for the final battle...but also those involved in resistance activities over several years including the Shelburn project of hiding and returning downed allied aviators back to British rescue ships at Bonaparte Beach.

Good longer movie also of old soldiers touring the site, and modern remembrance ceremonies including Sir John Robert...the leading hero.

An added plus...modern clean WC as part of this complex.

Well worth finding this treasure. Not far from Guincamp.

A piece of local history bringing us to the reality of living under under occupation. The stories of ordinary people who became resistance heroes is sensitively narrated in a way we can all understand. Read the other reviews, but do visit!
Btw, we had Sunday lunch in the Auberge next door. €27.50 for four courses is excellent value for a fine meal that would have cost you twice that in the UK. Guess the other Trip Advisor reviewers usually dine in Asda!

This is a brilliant little museum well worth a visit if you are interested in WW2 history.

It is not big, but we spent an hour or two there learning how the resistance fought the German occupation and assisted aircrew who had been shot down, get back to England.

These people were real heroes and this museum honours them in a quiet unassuming way.

It is out of town, but easily found if you follow the signs from St Connan.

The building is accessible to people in wheelchairs and there is an accessible WC in the adjacent cafe.

This one of many museums which tell the story of the resistance fighters of WWll. This one is hard to find but worth the effort. So nice to see a country that still remembers the past.I'll not dwell on these museums,but tell you a story. We were in a Brittany town and noticed that a section of pavement was in need of repair,all around was in good condition,I asked the hotel manager about it and he told me that three resistance fighters had been executed by the SS on the site and it had remained untouched since that day, no plaque just memories.

Set on the site where resistance fighters were operating from makes this museum feel special. The information is laid out in sequential order, making it easy to follow (sub titles and English translations on every exhibit).
The most fascinating part for us was when we watched the video at the end, which tied many stories together.
Whoever thought to interview the resistance fighters in their twilight years deserves a mention. They are all heroes, but come across as just ordinary people.
Well worth the entrance fee which is only a few Euros.
There is an expensive restaurant adjacent which served decent coffee.

Excellent presentation of The Resistance with a local emphasis but also telling the wider story of wartime France and the role of the Allies. An interesting, humbling and inspiring display with audiovisual alongside documents, photos, propaganda etc. Part of a complex with an Auberge with a lovely lunchtime menu and a lake for fly fishing - fee payable. I went a walk beside the lake into woods (Bois) that are so typical of this area.

We enjoyed the non UK perspective of WW2. Lots of interesting personal stories, good videos and artefacts.
Afterwards we had a coffee and ice cream in the hotel next door - not cheap, but very pleasant surroundings and friendly staff.

We have been here twice - its a great place - near a lovely lake with a restaurant there too - its seems in the middle of nowhere .
Its well presented - modern and very informative - liked the area where they use a screen film and you can sit and get the atmosphere.

I have been to quite a few Resistance museums and this is one of the best I have seen. The exhibitions are well presented, especially the subtitles videos played in different rooms.The videos are very personal, being narrations by members of the local Resistance reseau themselves. There are many books and a few DVD's on sale, but regrettably few in English. The museum is out of the way from the main roads and takes time to find, but very much worth a visit. Recommended.

Having visited last year but on a day it was shut, this year we were more organised. Arrived at opening time (14:00 on Wednesday afternoon) and left after over 2 hours. Although there are only about 6 rooms, the information about the local resistance fighters is fascinating. If you visit, make sure you read all the captions (in French and English) and watch the films (French with English subtitles). You won't regret it, especially if you are interested in this aspect of the Second World War. Well done.
