The place is composed of two museums. The Jean Moulin museum opened in 1994 to commemorate Jean Moulin, a major figure of the French Resistance, and the occupation of Paris during World War II.
Its accompanying museum, the Mémorial du maréchal Leclerc de Hauteclocque et de la Libération de Paris, commemorates Maréchal Philippe Leclerc de Hauteclocque and the liberation of Paris.
Designed by historians specialised in the Second World War, these two museums, which are also research and documentation centres, narrate and retrace the history of three “Companions of the Liberation”: General Leclerc de Hauteclocque, Jean Moulin and the City of Paris. The museography, which places major emphasis on audiovisual features, commemorates a crucial moment in 20th century history.
Both museums have their origin in the donation of the historic collection of the Foundation du Maréchal Leclerc which, under Jacques Chirac patronage was used in order to celebrate the history of General Leclerc and the legacy of Jean Moulin.
