Musée National des Deux Victoires
museum dedicated to two men, draws a parallel between Georges
Clemenceau and Jean de Lattre de Tassigny. Both were born in
Mouilleron-en-Pareds, and both had decisive roles in each of the World
Wars respectively, when representing France in the signing ceremonies
that ended the conflicts. Both subsequently transmitted a strong message
of French national unity and identity.
Marechal de Lattre was born in the house of his mother’s family,
Henault, in the centre of the village. The house is a typically upper
class residence of the 19th century. Jean de Lattre spent his early
years in this sturdy house which has hardly changed since. In his will
he left the house and many artefacts to be turned into a museum.
The museum is open all year round.
