My wife and I had a short stop off in Toulon whilst on a TUI cruiser and enjoyed the visit. The museum is quite small and contains interesting information on the Allied landing in Provence amongst other memorabilia.

This museum is very well put together, with good, meaningful information that does not overwhelm. They tell the story very well, and you can immerse yourself in the videos of first-person accounts if you like, or pass them up and still get the "meat" of...More

Educational and impressive story, particulary of the liberation of Provance in 1944. Interesting films, and many stories new to us. Nice view of Toulon from the entrance.

We were impressed by the exhibiton. Lot of uniforms, ammo, army equipments and a film brought back us to the time of the II. World War. This exhibition reminds us those who sacrificed themselves and how fragile is the peace.
