The museum offers a great collection of items from WWII. Info boards telling the local story from the war are also available. An English guide is available at the reception at no cost.

No information in English. Generally few things to see. I have seen many significantly better exhibitions about resistance movements in other countries.

This is an underground passage through the story of French resistance fighters in WW2. All commentaries are in French, no translations, but worth a visit.
