Practical Information

Visiting school groups

On the day of your visit, it is recommended that you go to the reception at the Memorial Charles de Gaulle 15 minutes prior to the time of your booking. You will be welcomed by a teacher from the Educational Department, who will issue your entrance tickets in exchange for the order form issued by the school. He will then show you the various areas of the Memorial and hand out the educational packs you have ordered prior to your visit.

Groups who have booked a guided tour and / or an educational workshop may leave their bags and personal effects in lockers provided for this purpose. Hard folders will be provided to pupils so they can add to and make best use of their educational packs.

Supervision of the school group

It is the responsibility of accompanying teachers to actively supervise groups who are in their charge. Pupils are asked to adopt a respectful attitude with the Memorial’s exhibition areas, as well as on the sites of the Cross of Lorraine and « Notre-Dame-des-otages ».

Picnic area

The Memorial Charles de Gaulle is able to provide an area for packed lunches to groups who so request. The picnic area is covered and heated, and has seating for 90. 
It is also possible to have lunch in the canteen of Colombey-les-deux-églises secondary school. For information and bookings, telephone : 03 25 01 52 65.
