If you have a keen interest in military history, the privately-owned 39-45 Museum in Léhon is a must-visit destination. This museum boasts an extensive collection of over 6,000 items from the Second World War, including a wide array of mainly artillery pieces, more than 30 authentic uniforms, and even historical vehicles. A highlight of the museum is the meticulously reconstructed bunker, equipped with a 47mm Skoda anti-tank gun—one of the last of its kind in Europe. This museum is a treasure trove that captivates visitors of all ages, particularly those fascinated by military paraphernalia.

Dedicated to preserving the memory of the Resistance, the museum also houses an impressive array of related artifacts, such as pamphlets, parachute containers, and S.A.S. artifacts. Adding to its allure, for the past two decades, the museum has been home to an original English airplane engine. The engine’s number, the pilot’s name, and the full history behind it have been thoroughly researched and documented, a feat made possible through the collaborative efforts of a Breton association focused on aeronautical remembrance and the British Ministry of Defence. This museum not only showcases military memorabilia but also tells the captivating stories behind them, making it a fascinating visit for anyone interested in the profound impact of the Second World War.
