Ce n'est pas la première fois que j'y vais, pour la première fois nous avons eu le droit à une visite avec le propriétaire. C'était particulier, je recommande ce site!

Great place, but took a lot of time to get there, because there are three chateau with the same name and different adresses. So you will enjoy a nice road puzzle, which I think only adds to the experience. Once we got there we found a lot of parking space because only one parking space was taken up by a rusty boat, left here by the previous visitors in 1944. After parking we proceded to the chateau, where we were met by the caretaker who was looking at us from the window with a somewhat surprised look. After our inquaries as to the location of the museum, told us to wait for him a bit. And so we did. Which I then realise was one of the best decisions of my life. We then walked to a stunning wooden house where after walking up the stairs where we were greeted by the sound of WW2 music, small ticket office and a small gift shop. The gift shop was small but still was on the same level as other gift shops we have seen while travelling through France. The ticket price was a bit to high for us as we have managed to see the whole of the museum from the ticket office. I also must mention that we didn't have to wait in a long line as was noted in some comments we have read. It's a great place that you should deffinatley visit if you are staying in Rouen for more than one night. The only downside was there were no trucks and cars from WW2 era, as they were there only on weekends on May 6 - 8. But we didn't consider this to much of a problem as even without them the experience was amazing.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
