  • The museum is, appropriately, dark and mysterious. Like the resistance members, it hides itself and is reluctant to be seen. By which I mean that it has few exhibits that relate directly to the French resistance movement. There is a lot of reading to be done, especially about the Second World War and how it impacted France, and an audio-visual that for some reason has no images or footage in a few places even though the sound continues. Local resistance heroes and heroines are justly celebrated, but as a museum it is a bit sparse in presenting the overall experience. Still, entrance is free, and if it's a boiling hot summer's day outside you'll appreciate the opportunity to become a shadow operative for a while.
  • A true eye opening experience, realizing the horror of world war 2 and the brave souls that fought valiantly to keep their freedom. Hard not to tear up after reading all the placards. However as a non speaking French person, the writing in English was very very small and at the bottom of the plack, had to bend over or squat to read, but well worth the effort
