An absolute gem of a Museum. I learnt so much in a short time regarding the Free French Army. The St Marcel Marquis and US & UK forces and UK SAS. So sad to see they are now struggling for funding. They made us very...More

Such a well-stocked museum almost in the middle of nowhere. It comes as a real surprise and has many first class exhibits. Well worth a trip.

This exhibition is great and explains the history of the occupation really well. It is all in French (well it IS all about the French resistance) there is an English guide book with lots of reading.
