Memory tourism

In 10 years, remembrance tourism has regained popularity among travelers who see it as an opportunity to enrich their culture but also to interest and raise awareness of History among the younger generation through increasingly educational means.

Remember that it was the first museum built to commemorate June 6, 1944 and the Battle of Normandy.

The show is an opportunity to stock up on ideas in this area: the art of travel diaries and photography will no longer hold any secrets for travelers with specific workshops for preserving their memories in an original way.
