Although from the outside it does not appear to attract. Forget that, inside is a superb and vast collection of military memorabilia and history. Admission is a very reasonable 5 Euros. Not to be missed!

Great place with loads of unique artifacts from many military periods. Worth a visit if you can find it.

This is a very interesting museum with many military exhibits. It is totally sponsored by military vets. There are displays of weapons, clothes and much more.

Surprisingly rich in holdings, even if small in size, this is a must-see museum for anybody interested in arms and military history. There are very rare guns, including a canon form the times of Louis XIV, Le Roi Soleil. Photos, stories, insignia, flags, you name...More

We visited the museum on our last day in Perigueux. Unfortunately we only gave ourselves an hour before it was due to close - so were rather rushed in the last few rooms. Being English (with a reasonable grasp of French), we took much longer...More

A good collection of military weapons, uniforms and other bits and bobs. A little bit randomly displayed but that adds to the charm. Labelling is in French but easy to follow. You get a little sheet in English describing each room. Probably only interesting for...More

Fantastic collection, but bizarre and random juxtaposition of objects from different eras, displayed higgledy-piggledy in weird rooms in tired display cabinets, mixed in with some hopefully accidental humour: the shop dummies with inappropriate faces for the military uniforms, followed by the rooms where they ran...More

Very extensive and interesting collection of military artefacts. Little random in its lay out, but the place is deceptively huge. Modest entrance fee..well worth the visit.
