Overview
More
Located within the Morvan Regional Nature Park Centre, the Resistance Museum provides an understanding of the role and importance of the Resistance in this region during the Second World War. Through its impressive collection, the museum brings history to life. A large number of items, archive documents, materials, photographs, weapons, and much more, are presented here in three different rooms. The first room examines the German occupation of the region and its consequences. The second is entirely dedicated to the Resistance, and the Maquis in particular. The final room of the museum focuses on the Liberation of the Morvan and how the Resistance is remembered. The Resistance Museum has recently joined the "Morvan Digital Gallery". Located at midpoint in the permanent exhibition, its portrait, "The Maquis of the Morvan," is an immersive projection space presenting daily life in the Maquis resistance groups. The Museum is run by the association "Morvan Terre de Résistances-ARORM".

It's hard to believe that this beautiful and remote countryside was the site of the most appalling savagery in WWII as the Germans took their revenge on the local people because of the amount of Resistance activity in the area, which was aided in 1944...More

Small but certainly well-formed! Informative and such wonderful photos but such a shame that most of the writing was only in French which meant my friend was very busy translating.

A most interesting museum at Saint Brisson in the Morvan Regional Park, about a part of World War II history that we don't often hear of. Fascinating. The entry price gives you headphones and there are headphones in English. It takes you through the Resistance...More

It's six years since we were last in Burgundy, staying almost in the heart of the Morvan that time. The area was at the centre of the French resistance effort in the second world war, and after reading on the subject on that last stay,...More
