  •   Respect aux bénévoles qui font tenir cela alors que c'est un endroit très bien conçu même si étroit en cas de visites de groupes. Un grand stock de photos d'époque avec mise en jumelles intéressantes. Un mélange des 2 guerres appréciable. On ressent la peine...Plus

      Had we not had a toddler with us I would have spent more time taking in the information. As it was I was able to listen and read some of it and what I heard and the stereo photos were very interesting. It's a nice...More
