“Closed until November 2012”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

I should have read TripAdvisor more closely.

This was the museum we wanted to visit having an interest in WW2 and recently explored the historical background to 'Sarah's Key' and the collaboration of some parts of the French state.

Like another reviewer we found that this museum is closed. The date of opening again is listed as November 2012. Rennovation of the Centre Berthelot seems to be well overdue.

Look for the commemorative plaque on the wall to the right of the main gate.

“A trip into the Horror, but must do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2012

It show you how people had to live in an occupied country, when you can't trust anybody... Emotional travel in time, where you will learn more about Lyon, Capital of French Resistance, and Jean Moulin, the symbol of this resistance, prodigal son of Lyon who didn't get to see his country free...

“THOROUGH”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2011

I spent some hours here exploring the history of the Resistance through the various exhibits-posters, books, film clips, object, photos, lists, descriptions. It is a detailed and seemingly complete coverage.
