Located on northern outskirts of Strasbourg, MM Park houses an extensive collection of military vehicles and heavy equipment from World War II. There is a number of war-related attractions and exhibitions, recommended for any military history enthusiast.
MM Park has been opened in 2017 on the northern outskirts of Strasbourg. In spacious building it houses over 100 vehicles, artillery pieces, and even aircraft. The equipment on display hails from United States, Canada, Belgium, France, Great Britain, Germany, and the Soviet Union.
The vehicles have been restored and provide a unique chance to see the equipment used during the fighting for (or against) the liberation. The museum also contains a set of Soviet tanks and self-propelled guns, which are not commonly found in Western European museums. Among them there is a rare T-26 tank.
Apart from large-scale items, the Park also displays 191 complete military uniforms from the Second World War, including a few sets of female uniforms. These are supplemented with – amongst others – a selection of original wartime posters, a replica of a German U-Boat’s sail, a German patrol boat, and a “Biber” German midget submarine.
There is also an exhibit about the ‘Sussex Plan’ which entailed parachuting trained French men and women in France to provide intelligence on the state of German defences prior to and during the invasion.
The museum also has several interactive activities which can be booked via its website.
The historic region of Alsace-Moselle was a contended area between Germany and France. The memorial tells the story of the local inhabitants and their dramatic history during the Second World War.
The Natzweiler Struthof concentration camp operated from April 1941 until September 1944. During this time an estimated 22.000 inmates died to disease, exhaustion, maltreatment or execution by the camp guards. The former camp currently houses a museum and the European centre of deported resistance members.
The museum of the liberation of the Colmar Pocket, full of authentic big and small artefacts, tells the story of a dramatic page of Alsatian history during the bitter cold fighting for the Colmar Pocket.
The Schoenenbourg Fort is the most important Maginot Line fortification in Alsace, France. The fort has been open to the public since 1978. The barracks and kitchens, the command post, gun positions and other former locations can be visited. The museum presents documents on the history of the Maginot Line and on military life in a fort.
