The Resistance Museum

A place of memory

Since its opening in 2001, the Resistance Museum tells the story of the 27 shots of Châteaubriant. Installed in the old farm at the entrance of the site, said de la Sablière, a large collection is presented, enriched continuously by many gifts.

 

Le musée de la résistance

Nearly 500 original pieces are exhibited: letters, photographs, posters, press articles, clothing, weapons, parachute, radio, bicycle.

On two levels and through three exhibition spaces, the museum invites visitors to discover the Resistance in France during the Second World War.

Today we are the heirs of this story.

The association of the Friends of the Resistance Museum of Châteaubriant, in charge of the animation of the site, leads many valorization actions.

Each year, she participates in the National Contest of Resistance and Deportation (CNRD), coordinated by the Ministry of National Education, carrying out a temporary exhibition.

From October 19, 2019 until October 10, 2020, the association presents the exhibition: “1940, enter Resistance? “. Consisting of twelve panels and some objects, it is presented on the floor of the museum for a year. The Museum thus perpetuates the history and the memory of the French Resistance.
