Musée Dunkerque 1940 - Opération Dynamo


Spoken languages : français, anglais

This museum is located in the bunkers of Bastion 32, which served as the headquarters for the French and Allied forces during the Battle of Dunkirk and Operation Dynamo. The Mémorial du Souvenir tells the incredible story of the battle and of the evacuation of more than 340,000 allied soldiers from the "Pocket of Dunkirk". The visit takes you through a corridor of 350 metres lined with maps of military operations and photographs. There's a wealth of weapons, uniforms and models to be seen in this collection, as well as a 15-minute film showing footage from the period.
