We had a stopover in Forges-les-Eaux on our way back from holiday. Given the good traffic we arrived earlier than expected, so were looking round for something to do before dinner. Helpfully, the museum was open until 6pm. (Other reviews suggest opening times can vary, so best to check.)

This is a small, locally-run museum; there are no audio guides and they accept only cash payments. The staff were very friendly, and their faltering English was rather better than my basic French! Most exhibits had descriptions in English as well as French.

The museum is divided into two sections. Downstairs, the museum focuses on the way in which WW2 affected the local area. Upstairs, the focus is on the role of the French Resistance - again, based very much in the Forges-les-Eaux area.

We left with a profound sense of the reality of living through WW2 in a way that many larger places fail to convey. The scale of hardship, sacrifice and loss was palpable. Do visit if you’re in the area.

Stayed in Forges les Eaux to break a journey, one reason for choosing the town was to visit the museum. Not very large, but still needs an hour or so to visit. Check for opening times, usually the afternoons.

On two floors the ground floor of the museum has life size dummies dressed in all the Allied and Nazi uniforms together with weaponry. Details of Allied aircraft local crashes and what happened to those who survived - POW or Resistance recovery etc. Includes parts of the aircraft. It the ages of the Bomber Command crews - 18-20 on average and usually the pilot was the oldest at 21/22.
Up stairs it covers Resistance activities, the material dropped to support them and items of Concentration camp uniform etc of those who survived that experience.

This privately owned, I think, museum is well worth a visit. Lifelike models and many artifacts including a particularly poignant crashed spitfire engine are there, spread over 2 floors. A lot of what you'd expect and some you wouldn't.
Check on opening times as they are not like British museums and open and close at odd hours
