  • The towns of Modane and stove look worn but their past is glorious. This museum is a nugget by its rich documentation.

  • Visit on the run until the train but I do not regret this dive in the past: beauty of objects and moving testimony of the war of 14. Staff were very friendly

  • Stay with family in Valfréjus for skiing, we took advantage of a "grey" day to go and visit the Modane Museobar. The round trip in a taxi and the entrance of the Museum are offered for the modest sum of €5 per person. The Museum tells the past of the town of Modane since its attachment to France until 1935. The visit is presented through the ambience of cafés at the time: the Italians in the station Café, military and bourgeois coffee. A collection of original mechanical pianos Piedmontese then local adds to the presentation. The icing on the cake, Claudine THEOLIER, the friendly 'Madam' of places, unconditional lover of his heritage, has explanations and details about the Museum, the exhibits and the history of its Valley. Bravo.

  • A lot of interesting things in a relatively small place. We were greeted by a very friendly Lady. A nice moment.

  • I discovered this place thanks to the school of my daughter who is in cm2 and who has studied the 1st World War. I learned that on 12 December 1917 a train wreck carrying soldiers killed more than 600. Unknown episode in other regions.
