Lyon suffered during WW2. All of France did, but the head of Lyon's Gestapo, Klaus Barbie, was a particularly nasty piece of work who took to torturing people himself, among that number one of the most senior members of the French Resistance. This museum is on the site of Nazi headquarters in Lyon, in Barbie's office, and is full of information and artefacts telling to story of the resistance. It's not meant to be a harrowing journey though the museum, but it's not going to be all smooth sailing now is it.

Open Wednesday to Sunday.
