  • Easy to access from the car park of Place de Gaulle. Free entrance. Give yourself at least 90 minutes - there is a lot to see, despite the small size of the museum. Lots of information in French, but there is a small leaflet in English for use during your stay. Fascinating actually seeing all the SOE equipment right next to you - the drop canisters, the radios, the weapons, and so forth. A very good description of individual resistance actions. Note that there is a distinct bias to recording just the resistance of the Lot, but that does not take away from this great museum. Some VERY disturbing pictures of tortures and other atrocities committed by the Nazis.
  • Very nice little Museum. Documents are stored in a very functional ways. They have good condition and beautiful objects.
