Museum of veteran freedom fighters in Brugnens

©Musée des anciens combattants pour la liberté de Brugnens

The Museum of veteran freedom fighters in Brugnens, in the Gers department, is the work of the Da Silva brothers.

Initially a private collection, this project grew to such an extent that it turned into a veritable museum overseen by the “Mémoire des combattants en Gascogne” (Memory of the Gascony Fighters) association.

From the beginning, the founders placed their museum space at the crossroads of remembrance and the memory of contemporary conflicts.

The choice was thus made to offer visitors a historical journey through the two World Wars.


 

The museum chronologically presents the evolution of soldiers’ arms and uniforms from the Great War to the Résistance.


 

This undertaking is unique in the Gers department and presents widely diverse collections for the pleasure and interest of all:

front pages of newspapers, photos, posters, letters, brassards, containers, arms, uniforms, etc.


 

Visits and admission price: The museum is open year-round to all, free of charge, by appointment.
