The Historial Charles de Gaulle opened its doors to the public in February 2008. Spread over 2 500 m2, it presents the life of a man whose fate was inextricably linked with that of France and the world for more than thirty years. It is located in the heart of l’Hôtel des Invalides, part to the Army museum. The museum consists of a multimedia room with high-tech equipment. Five screens enable visitors to watch a 20 minute film unfolding the major historical events Charles de Gaulle was involved in. Visitors can also listen to a synchronized audio guide and use multimedia and interactive devices to delve deeper into a subject.
