Site Memorial Du Camp Des Milles Reviews & Ratings
Whilst I didn't go in, I just passed the place, my daughter has visited twice and says it is very interesting and quite thought provoking.
Five stars easy. The museum completely immerses you into the time and explains everything leading up to World War 2 that led to the holocaust during it. Then it shows where France and the Camp des Milles fell into this dark episode and then you get to see the actual floors and spots people had to sleep in. Deeply touching museum with an amazing amount of information. I would recommend 1.5/2 hours at least.
Very interesting, lots to take in, allow 3 hours or so and eat before you go as there's no cafe!!
A very thoughtful place to revisit the Holocaust.
excellent testimony of a little-known story of the Second World War. Wonderful renewal of the structure
