Discover the remarkable collection of this military aviation enthusiast, Gérard LEQUIEN, since the day when, in 1943, he witnessed the crash of a bomber in his town! The bombing museum is an open window on military aviation during the Second World War. During your visit, you will be immersed in this history thanks to all that our enthusiast has been able to accumulate, namely hundreds of objects to "not forget history" (as Mr. LEQUIEN confides): uniforms, remains, objects and documents from the period, parts of planes,... These little treasures of history were bequeathed to the Municipality of Saint-Maximin, a town razed to the ground in 95% by Allied bombings in 1944, which in collecting them turned it into a museum in the stone cellars that served as shelter for the inhabitants during the war.
