This exhibit was very moving. Kudos for getting eyewitness accounts as the clock ticks down. The people highlighted in this museum are the real deal: true heroes and heroines that risked it all knowing they might not live to see the fruits of their labor....More

I think the museum is trying for balance but there is a bit of glossing over of the compliance of the great mass of the French. It is understandable to want to sing the praises of the heroic few. For example, the blunders and the...More

A very thorough and well laid out record of Lyon's involvement in the 39- 45 war from the point of view of the resistance and the German treatment of both the resistance fighters and the Jewish population. Sometimes it is very harrowing but this all...More

I was generally aware of the French Resistance - but the visit to the museum provided a lot of supplementary information. We got the audio since all signage was in French. I think they could have done a little bit better in tying in the...More

Bitterly disappointed, which is self inflicted. All exhibits in French- no English anywhere. Audio assistance in English available, however, need to produce passport or drivers licence. We purposely do not carry passports around the streets, and travelling exclusively by train no need for licence. I...More
