    Good parking, Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent displays of medals, insignia and regimental flags. Guided tours in assorted languages from Veterans who were at many of the incidents shown in the video presentations. Excellent value for those interested in military history. Possibly not ideal for little children. Good military history source and a small shop with souvenirs. I'll be going back next time in Pau.

    The Memorial Museum of the paratroopers is the only depositary museum of the identity of all French airborne troops. It invites you to discover their history, their traditions, their heritage and their news. Open to a large public, the museum traces the history of French paratroopers since their creation, on the eve of the Second World War, to the present day. The airborne troops are presented through a wide historical panorama composed of scenes containing equipped mannequins, weapons and vehicles. Built on the foundations of the main hall of the School of Airborne Troops located north of Pau, it is part of a complex that occupies the Lande du Pont Long, a major site in the history of aeronautics in the 20th century.
