The Memorialthe permanent exhibition
The visitor is successively plunged into the atmosphere of different periods, with the technological equipment acting as a sort of interpretation centre that allows each one of us to discover the personality of Charles de Gaulle and immerse ourselves in the great events of history through explanatory and educational texts.
The permanent exhibition looks at all aspects of Charles de Gaulle and his time. The permanent exhibition considers the General as a writer, as the leader of Free France, as a father and as a politician; it also appraises the legacy he left behind and the criticisms and caricatures which he inspired.
Spread over 1,600 square metres, the permanent exhibition looks at its subject from an unusual angle: Charles de Gaulle’s attachment to the village of Colombey-les-deux-églises and the surrounding countryside.
A place of living history, the Memorial Charles de Gaulle is rich with a wide variety of media envisaged by the scenographies of Nausicaa, Christian Le Conte and Geneviève Noirot : decors, films on giant screens, multimedia terminals, sound designs, written commentaries, slideshows, and sound and audio-visual archives.
From a technological viewpoint, everything is covered.
