The Musée de la Résistance et de la Déportation has embarked on a major metamorphosis project and will reopen its doors on 8 September 2023.

Its completely revamped permanent exhibition will feature a rich selection of archives and objects, offering a fascinating insight into the complexities of the Second World War. It will illustrate the lives of men and women caught up in history, from the Nazis' rise to power to the Liberation and its aftermath.
The Musée de la Résistance et de la Déportation has been committed to its mission as a museum of history since its inception, and it is more essential than ever to continue this work at a time when the last witnesses are disappearing...
