Musée National des Deux Victoires

This 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.

Opening times
The museum is open all year round.
