The War Resistance Museum, in the heart of historical Limoges, opened in 1989. A collection of weapons, objects and authentic documents are used to depict the different forms and actions of the local resistance movement. The museum approaches the themes of Nazism and Deportation. The museum also organizes temporary exhibitions (with an entrance fee.)

Impressive Museum! Combined a visit to Limoges and this museum with a trip to Oradour-sur-Glane. This turned out to be an excellent combination. The museum gives an excellent incite into the Nazi occupation and the Resistance Movement in the region. In fact we spent too much time in the museum and not enough to see other parts of Limoges. -trip advisor
