The Musée des Mémoires 39-45

Just 500m from Pointe Saint-Mathieu, the Musée des Mémoires 39-45 invites you to immerse yourself in local history during the Second World War.


A museum in the heart of a German blockhouse

The experience begins as soon as you step inside this 500m2 German command blockhouse, which is almost entirely buried. You will discover five floors devoted to the history of the Second World War in Brittany and the memories of those who lived through it. The interior of the blockhouse has been restored to its original condition: officer's bedroom, bathroom, soldiers' quarters, etc.

Each of the rooms you pass through has its own theme:
  • The daily life of soldiers on the Atlantic Wall
  • The history of the war in Brittany
  • Collaboration and resistance...
In all, almost 1,000 soldiers' souvenirs, photos and objects are on display.

At the end of your visit, enjoy a superb panoramic view over the entrance to Brest harbour as far as Ouessant.
