This museum, established in the birthplace of Georges Clemenceau, illustrates the parallel between Clemenceau and Jean de Lattre de Tassigny.

The museum was created in 1959 in the birthplace of Georges Clemenceau. It establishes a parallel between Clemenceau and Jean de Lattre de Tassigny by showing the links between their destinies: both were born in Mouilleron-en-Pareds, both played a role in the world wars, both signed on behalf of France to bring the two conflicts to an end and to declare the 'two victories', both had the same recognition and respect for France: each of the two men 'deserves well of his country'. The museum was renovated in 1998. It contains personal objects, documents, engravings and photographs evoking the life of Clémenceau and Marshal de Lattre de Tassigny and their respective roles in the two world wars.
