Here, one benefits from the welcome of the owner of the museum, who comments on his collections, which are particularly rich in rare uniforms. Pieces deposited by the inhabitants of the village increase the interest of this museum which in this way becomes part of the local history. One can, for example, discover the complete equipment of American or German veterans who fought in Manhay or objects deposited by locals to animate the intergenerational reflection.

Along a path lined with scenes of exceptional realism, we discover the challenging existence of soldiers and civilians thrown into the turmoil.
