  • Whether we are vendéen or not, this museum manages to transport us from prehistoric times to the present day. Authentic objects, animations, there are for all ages in this museum which is rather a giant exhibition. Plan a good afternoon if you want to have time to do everything. To discover absolutely!

  • Very nice exhibition. Planning time because it's worth it. Osemble to speak only of the American camp of the pit, a little bit of the one of Saint-Jean-de-Monts without mentioning the commune of Saint-Hilaire de Riez while the field Gaillard is located on this commune. In addition, I think there is an error of historical interpretation. If the Americans went to war in 1917, it is not because of the excessive torpedoes of Germany but because President Wilson had just been re-elected in 1916 and that he could then emerge from his neutrality.

  • Visited both the Historial and the Memorial, primarily to see the 2nd.World War exhibition, which we found interesting, seeing it from it's effect on the French people. The building is modern and striking and facilities good, but the cafe menu is limited out of season. We found the Memorial to the Vendee massacres very moving - the commentary to the video presentation is in various languages via headphones and the chapel is worth a visit.
  • Fun interactive museum where you can see the while history of mankind. There is an extra room for kids to play in and room for other exhibitions! 5 euro's to enter and it's worth it.
  • A lovely place to visit with the children
  • Well worth a visit
