Memorial for Peace Museum - Le Militarial - Boissezon

Le Militarial, in Boissezon (Tarn), presents the Memorial for Peace Museum, a remembrance site in honour of war veterans of the 20th century.

 

With eight rooms, 5 000 objects on display and a library of over 10 000 books, it is an essential learning resource - and definitely worth a visit.

Housed in the 11th-century Boissezon fort, this outstanding collection of authentic objects and documents concerned with the history of armed conflict in the 20th century is an educational and remembrance resource. Its eight exhibition rooms display weaponry, equipment, photographs, documents and literature from the First and Second World Wars, as well as more recent conflicts like Korea, Indochina and Algeria. Armed, uniformed mannequins of our brave soldiers add a remarkable layer of realism. These conflicts left scars which should help prevent new wars and serve as a reminder for future generations.

 

Created by the now deceased Dr Christian Bourdel, the museum is regularly enhanced through donations and new acquisitions. The museum’s considerable reserve collection means it is able to put on regular temporary exhibitions, as well as lending items to other organisations for events.
