Discover the remarkable collection that Gérard, a military aviation enthusiast, put together after witnessing the crash of a bomber in the Oise region when he was just 13 years old. Since that day, he has devoted his life to the history of the bombings in the department, and has even gone to meet the families of some of the missing soldiers.

The bombing museum is a window on military aviation during the Second World War. During your visit, you'll be immersed in this history thanks to everything our enthusiast has been able to accumulate, hundreds of objects to "make sure we don't forget history", as Gérard puts it: uniforms, relics, objects and documents from the period, aircraft parts, etc.

These little treasures of history were bequeathed to the municipality of Saint-Maximin, a town 95% razed to the ground by Allied bombing in 1944, which collected them and turned them into a museum in the stone cellars that served as shelter for the inhabitants during the war.
