This exhibition is great and explains the history of the occupation really well. It is all in French (well it IS all about the French resistance) there is an English guide book with lots of reading.

We visited out of curiosity after driving past the place several times and were not disappointed. A wealth of information and exhibits that show a side to WW2 that we knew very little about. This place can keep you interested for hours.
