The museum's collections, which bring together items from all over Brittany, began as the collection of an enthusiast (Éric Pasturel) and have been growing for over thirty years. They boast over 12,000 items from the field (from cigarette packets to aircraft engines).
The museum features over 40 mannequins in original dress, artillery pieces and period vehicles. It evokes the Resistance(leaflets, parachute containers, S.A.S. objects) and shows the reconstitution of a blockhouse: bedroom with its regulation furniture, radio room, firing casemate with its complete 47 mm SKODA gun, one of the only ones left in Europe.
