  • A place already very rich history that unfortunately will be illustrated as the headquarters of the "gestapo" during the end of the occupation with as a trophy the decision from the plight of Jean Moulin. This museum very well informed and arranged, with a remarkable collection of leaflets, posters, pictures, etc. Count 2: 00 for a good visit (with audioguide) Parking behind the Museum

  • Lyon was a resistance HQ in WW II and the small exhibit provides deep local history of this period of great sadness and great heroism.  more »
