  • The unconditional surrender of the German army was signed in a room of General Eisenhower’s headquarters on 7 May 1945. This room is still intact today and a museum has been created around it.

    On Monday, 7 May 1945 at 2.41 am in the War Room of General Eisenhower’s supreme headquarters (S.H.A.E.F.), which occupied part of what was Reims’ technical college, the Allied Forces put an end to the Second World War in Europe by obtaining the unconditional surrender of the Third Reich’s armed forces. This momentous news was broadcast simultaneously the following day, 8 May, at 3 pm in the capital cities of the allied nations. The site was subsequently turned into a museum in 2005, including its Salle de la Signature (Signing Room), which has remained intact. The museum displays, among other attractions, more than fifty authentic, vintage figures.

    Open all the year from 10am to noon and from 2pm to 6pm. Closed on Tuesday, 1 January, 1 May, 14 July, 1 and 11 November, 24, 25 and 31 December.
    Free entry on the first Sunday of every month and on 7 and 8 May.

    so worthwhile, can't imagine a trip to Reims that wouldnt include this. For a small entrance fee you see an informative film with some actual WW2 footage and good info on the signing of the documents to end the war in Europe.
