  • I was more impressed than I expected to be. There is alot to see and from an historical point of view, very interesting, not only for what the site was used for, but for how the people were treated. I also enjoyed, very much the view of the war from the French perspective and some exhibits were extremely moving. This is well worth a visit. There is a large car park. The site is suitable for disabled access and you can spend as long as you wish inside. I would suggest giving approximately 1.5 to 2 hours for the visit.
  • WW2 History monument with a greatly instructive museum. The beginning of space exploration history is also who explained, as is good tangled with the war's engineering. The 3D.planetarium is a lot light hearted experience and another well executed show. Combined tickets for 15 euro and 10 for the museum only. Picnic tables available and plenty of green outside.
