CHERBOURG-EN-COTENTIN

Musée de la Libération

WW2 Museums

The museum of Liberation sits proudly atop the mountain Roule dominating Cherbourg, 117 meters above the level of the sea. It is housed in an old fort of the Second Empire, occupied by the German army during the second world war. His recovery by Allied troops, June 25, 1944, is one of the symbols of the liberation of Cherbourg. The museum traces the role of Cherbourg - first released Ports - during the Second World War, focusing on the lives of civilians and soldiers. The itinerary inside the Fort, ends at the exit, by the discovery of a splendid panorama of the harbor of Cherbourg.
