Really good for a quick visit if you have an hour spare, worth noting that you get a discount at the nearby Batterie Todt which is also worth the visit. Lots of uniforms with a description on what they are in both French and English,...More

The main part of this museum are uniforms from WW2 many of which are displayed in scenes which add interest. The museum also houses many artefacts. All the displays were immaculately clean and well presented.
