  • I went there with a friend who like me is older than 60 years, we have not experienced the war, and this visit was very educational.

The downside is to reach the museum itself located at the level of the Atlantic garden at the top of the Montparnasse train station, the Museum must also move to Denfert Rochereau within 2 years. The Museum is free but the temporary exhibitions are not free
