The Museum

In honor of the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of Paris, the Musée de la Libération de Paris - Musée du Général Leclerc - Musée Jean Moulin is inaugurated on Place Denfert-Rochereau.

Come and discover a fundamental page in the history of France through the journey of two very different men, Jean Moulin and Philippe de Hauteclocque. Their common goal, the liberation of France, of which the Liberation of Paris is the predominant symbol. The new museum tour awaits you, begining on August 25.

The opportunity also to descend underground to a central place for the Liberation of Paris, opened for the first time to the public : a defense shelter used as a command headquarters by Colonel Rol (future Rol-Tanguy), head of the FFI in the Paris region.
