  • The Museum deserved a restoration. This refreshment was good but I still think that we do not climb on it and that it is not at the level of the museum of resistance of Lyon. Located in hell rock in front of the catacombs... people who despair of waiting for the catacombs will be able to visit it. It's free except for the rol tanguy bunker.

  • I thought I'd go around in an hour, but I finally stayed there for more than 3 hours. Jean Moulin, Leclerc, liberation The subjects are numerous and well mentioned. There are many objects and documents quite moving. I particularly appreciated the emphasis of less well-known shadow resistance fighters than Jean Moulin. Small mention for the visit of the underground that hosted Colonel Rol's PC during the Paris uprising. We did it in immersion with augmented reality headsets that bring life to this amazing place.

  • Great museum with insight in to the French resistance during WWII. Best of all it's completely free and well laid out. As of last week they have opened up the underground bunker that was used by the French resistance and that's also completely free to see. It's one level down from the main entrance and you'll see it at the end of the walk through. If you'd like to go in to the bunker you'll have to get a ticket at the entrance when you first get in to the museum. There's a standard viewing and a virtual reality one which you have to follow one of the resistance personally around the bunker as he goes through certain procedures. That's about 45 minutes all up. I did that, but probably would have preferred to have just walked through at my own pace. Still a really neat experience.
  • Recently inaugurated museum in front of Le Catacombs of Paris, it definitely worth to visit. Its free, and explains WWII from the “Resistance “point of view. You can see a lot of heroes that fought for France’s liberation. It has 3 stories make sure you visit all of them
