    The museum remembers the 177 men who formed the Free French Army and landed with 130,000 other allies troops. Good 30 minute (ish) video but a small museum. Worth a visit if you are in the area but perhaps not a special trip.

    The museum has a good viewing of the weapons which the several countries used and their strategies and they show a film of some of the war and training before the men went into battle and it is very good if you are interested in world war 2
