  • This museum was renovated in 2017 and fully deserves a five star re-review. The story of the other D-Day, the one in the south of France,is brilliantly brought alive using the latest audio-visual tech...  more »
  • The landing in Provence seems to be somewhat forgotten war. Very few books, movies etc expended unlike other landings in Europe and the Pacific. It is true that the proportions are quite different. We are here in the presence of a small memorial especially composed of facsimiles of documents. Very few period objects are exposed (how the tank 35T Sherman happened up here?), which is really a shame. The heroes of this landing deserved not vanishing memories, as did the colonial troops who have well been forgotten by the mother country in the payment of their pensions and benefits... (which is obviously not addressed in this memorial)... I will give a special mention to the panoramic projection summarizing operations. Note also the panoramic view of the harbour of Toulon without forget the thrill of the climb and descent in car...

  • Wonderful!!!
  • A must see
  • Musée Mémorial du Débarquement is a small, but very good exhibition inside a fine World War II hill top fortress above Toulon. The views from the fortress are worth the visit alone. The most charming way to get there is to take the cable car from Boulevard Amiral Jean Vence in Toulon (lat lon 43.137334, 5.934525). On the other hand a drive up there would of course be spectacular in itself. The military exhibition covers the history of the landing of the allied forces. The upper station of the cable car is just below the fortress. There is also a zoo nearby and many other things to see.
