It was an easy 25min bus ride on line 4 to Les Milles departing near Aix-en-Provence Tourism Office (only couple euros). Get off at Les Milles Gare stop in town and you will see the huge building straight away. I went with my husband and...More

We stopped here on our drive between Aix-en-Provence and Avignon and are certainly glad we did. The museum is really well-done. They do a great job of providing an overview of WWII and the Holocaust as well as providing many inspiring stories of individual resistance....More

You must enter the complex through a separate security area. There are no signs in English, and the security officer was quite frankly scary. She yelled at us in rapid French and although I'm sure she knew English, she decided to use as little as...More

This ex -internment camp left me with mixed feelings. The building and displays are fascinating to walk round and we had the luxury of it being virtually tourist-free the day we visited. The enormity of it emphasises the shear scale of the internment operation and...More

A museum that is appropriately created to deliver sad but important events during WW2 in an about the Provence region. Try to take in as much of the exhibits as you can the unfolding story is unbelievable. Hire yourself a handheld recorder in English to...More

a valuable and stirring experience. well worth the time and effort. it's maybe the only place where the French have taken responsibility for the horrors of the collaborationist Vichy regime 1939-1942.

A tremendous and important attempt to remind all future generations of the awful things carried out in the last world war but also a warning that it can do easily happen again, as it sadly has, repeatedly since. Well worth a visit, it took us...More

This is essentially a holocaust museum with a twist. The exhibits are subtle which makes the impact even greater. No emaciated prisoners or mass graves, just an Auschwitz uniform, eye-witness accounts of German interned poets and writers. A multimedia show comparing Nazi genocide to present...More

Tells a very interesting and educational story of what the Vichy government actually did in France. Mostly good English translation for the exhibits although it was very long. Would recommend to visit but be aware it will take a while to look round entirely.
