Mars 2020, a brutal stop and a battle to be fought
This beginning of 2020, will have shown us how fragile man is and how great he can be in adversity. The Covid crisis was an ordeal such as our generation and that of our children have never known. It allowed us to touch a small part of what our elders experienced during the Second World War and forbade us to give up.
That year, the museum was not able to reopen as planned at the end of March, but we continued to work: improvement of the museum’s scenes, development of the exteriors, enrichment of our collections, postponement of conferences, organization of virtual ceremonies such as “Les clochers de la Liberté” (The bells of Freedom) or “The June 6 Drive”.
We also redesigned the website and set up an online reservation system that allowed us to welcome the public as soon as we were authorized. Unfortunately the health situation forced us to close again and to reduce our team but we continued to prepare the reopening: redesign this time of our E-commerce website (to find online all the products sold in the store), layout and decoration of the museum entrance, finishing touches in the Greenfield Room for cultural events and professional and private meetings.
2021, we were looking forward to the return of our visitors and they came back
On our side, projects continued to bloom. The store has been redesigned. The Greenfield Room was completed and since then, it has been used for a variety of business and private events.
