National Center Jean Moulin
Centre National Jean Moulin
Created in 1967 at the instigation of Jacques Chaban-Delmas, Compagnon de la Libération and National Military Delegate for General de Gaulle in Occupied France, the Centre National Jean Moulin brings together under the same roof a Second World War documentation centre and a museum dedicated to the history of the Resistance, Deportation and the Free French Forces.
The centre has an educational, memorial and didactic function, achieved through its work of conservation, research and provision of access to the collections for which it is responsible. It houses a unique and remarkable collection, the result of the generosity of many resistance members and deportees. These items illustrate the tragic and heroic reality of this painful period in a permanent exhibition spread over three floors, as well as temporary exhibitions accompanied by cultural activities. May the names of those to whom we owe such a great debt and who sacrificed so much live on in our hearts and minds!
