One of the best museums of its type.
It’s strength is the number of exhibits and the detail they have gone into to create the atmosphere of June 1944, from both sides. And it’s not just the military aspect they cover, but also the plight of the civilians. There is a film of interviews with older people who were children during the Occupation (although the interviews are in French with no subtitles) and a compilation of raw newsreel film, with English commentary and French subtitles. Visitors are able to interact with a small number of exhibits which children (young and old) would enjoy. For example, sitting in a jeep of the period, or trying on helmets or handling authentic weapons.
