Museum of History Jean Garcin

A multi-disciplinary approach - historical, literary and artistic - to daily life in France during the Occupation. Presentation of the Resistance in Vaucluse. Arts and letters during the pre-war period to the Liberatoin.

The museum is the brainchild of the Departmental Assembly and its President Jean Garcin, "Colonel Bayard" in the Resistance. The aim was to bear lasting witness to a recent history, while going beyond the anecdotal nature of the event to express and promote a universal ideal.

One of the greatest decorators in the history of French and American cinema, Willy Holt, who won a César for decoration in 1988 for Louis Malle's film Au revoir les enfants, contributed to the museum project.

The museum is temporarily closed. Reopening planned for 2024.
