The pathway through the permanent display at the Liberation of Paris – General Leclerc Museum – Jean Moulin Museum tells the story of a world at war and asks the central question of commitment. Touring on your own or with a guide, taking a mixed-reality tour or accompanied by your “visit companion” on a smartphone, you can choose the way you want to immerse yourself in history and follow in the footsteps of Jean Moulin and General Leclerc.

Visit the permanent collections

A chronological pathway invites you to discover the life and career of Jean Moulin and Philippe de Hauteclocque, the situation in France between the wars, the collapse in June 1940, the Occupation, the Resistance and the combats led by the Free French, all the way to the liberation of France, with Paris as its strongest symbol.

The new museum layout proposes a visit featuring direct encounters with over 300 items, original documents, photos, archive videos and personal accounts that evoke the two great figures of the museum, as well as the Resistance, combat, repression, clandestine operations and newfound freedom.
