The memorial was an impressive visit when interested in history. One should plan about 2 hours for the visit. There is also a little coffee and souvenir shop. Nice view when enjoying a cup of coffee outside.

The memorial is just outside a fantastic museum and absolutely worth the visit. It's not cheap but worth every penny. If you're interested in history this is a place to go

A very interesting visit into the life of this great French man which had an audio guide to break down the language barrier. A souvenir shop and cafe are also at the museum.
