The June 1944 Museum presents the key events of the Second World War, particularly those that took place in the region, through life-size reconstructions and the authentic voices of the main players in the conflict. From the June 18, 1940 call to arms to the defeat of the Germans, visitors discover the faces and voices of the major figures of this troubled period. The wax figures are presented life-size: General de Gaulle, Roosevelt, Churchill, General Leclerc, Pétain, Hitler and more. All the great figures are represented. You'll be plunged into the harsh reality of the Second World War.
A 36 m² animated strategic map explains the Battle of Normandy. Inaugurated in the outbuildings of the Château de L'Aigle in 1953 by Madame la Maréchale Leclerc de Hautecloque, the Musée juin 44 was the first talking museum in France.
Open from April to September.
