  • The World War II Museum (Musée de Mémoire 39-45), located in the heart of the city in an authentic blockhouse of the Kriegsmarine (German War Navy), will let you relive the dire fate of the inhabitants of Calais during the Second World War by means of numerous photographs, press cuttings and objects from everyday life.
    Twenty exhibition rooms and a projection room will allow you to discover the history of the city of the Six Burghers and witness the memorable events that marked this period and the local population. You will discover numerous uniforms from World War II, particularly the "Green Jackets" of the British army, present at Calais in 1940, but also parts of aeroplanes brought down in the region during the war, many contemporary posters and an authentic German telephone exchange. Numerous personal belongings of both soldiers and civilians will make your visit even more moving. Highly realistic scale models will also enable you to visualise the concentration camps.
