The Musée de la Libération de Paris - Musée du Général Leclerc de Hauteclocque - Musée Jean Moulin opened in 1994, 50 years after the Liberation of Paris. Originally located above the Montparnasse station, the new museum now occupies a place that is more historically coherent, more expansive and more visible. It was moved to the Ledoux pavilion at Place Denfert-Rochereau, where Colonel Rol-Tanguy had set up his underground headquarters. It opened its doors on August 25, 2019, marking the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of Paris. The exhibition was totally redesigned, with a scenography that created a space for storytelling.
As part of the scenography, the device features map stories presented as animated maps, printed still maps, and interactive maps. The objective is to give visitors a clear picture and a lasting memory of the steps that led to the Liberation of France and of the heroes from this turbulent period.
