Interesting museum . Small so only there for about 1-1/2 hrs. Glad the chap didn’t charge for my 3 children who were 3,3&5 as it would have been too expensive . Good informative displays but a shame the film is only in French.

It's a small museum but absolutely brilliant. There's so much to see and take in here. Full of facts and brilliantly tells the story of what happened here. Highly recommended.

If the 2nd World War is of any interest, then this is well worth a visit. It is both informative, interesting and cheap to get in.
