General Discussion / Two French Museums about War
« Last post by socko47 on January 28, 2020, 01:13:27 PM »
Just recently had the opportunity to visit two museums, other than the classic Army Museum, in and near Paris. I am not a big history buff but found these both were informative, enlightening, and take a lot of time to visit. Both impressive and well done.  You will not be disappointed.

Musee de la Liberation de Paris. Musee du general Leclerc .  Musee Jean Moulin. Are three museums in one, recently opened in Paris, about WWII and the roll these two men played in the liberation. The museum is situated over the bomb shelter used during the war and more focused about this portion of the war.

The other is the Museum of the Great War (WWI) located outside Paris near the town of Meaux.  This is an excellent museum with a very large collection of uniforms and artifacts from one man's collection, all in remarkable condition.  This museum is accessible via public transportation from Paris.

Both are with a good amount of English translations.

I would say this for the color of the dress uniform I would go with the World War I shade. After the First World War Congress cut funding for the Army. It would not be until 1926 that it would be the change I would say they used the same color dyes up to about the med 30s  Willie
