  • Look at the picture for opening hours, but but... who cut the pictures, stupid Google I'm afraid? OK you can only see the hole picture if you hold your phone horizontal.
  • Great history, very thorough and a lot to read and absorb
  • Extremely interesting exhibition with lots of interesting details but the museum need to be renovated.
  • It may be nice but today it was closed. Nothing on their website or at the door. Wasted 1h between finding the entrance and waiting. Ridiculous
  • Small, but very well done. It gives detailed accounts of the many actions that the resistance fighters took against the nazis
