  • The english audio guide was fantastic (be warned you need some form of ID to leave as security for the headset) Museum was very informative with lots items on display. Well worth a visit  more »
  • Out of the center of history of the resistance, you can't be moved, thinking about these poor people that we suffered, all those people tortured by the Germans and clogged him Klaus Barbie. I recommend over the visit by the film of the trial of Klaus Barbie. We can't imagine the barbarism of one man as long as it has not heard the evidence
