Maison Natale de Charles de Gaulle

There are few Frenchmen who occupy the imaginations of their countrypeople like Charles de Gaulle, General of the Free French army in WWII, long-reigning president and still casting a long shadow over French politics. He was born in Lille in 1890 and his grandparents' house, where he was born and spent holidays as a child, has been turned into a monument to his life.

If you're not a de Gaulle-ophile, there's still a lot to interest you about the Maison Natale de Charles de Gaulle, which is set up as a recreation of 19th-century middle-class dwelling and focuses not only on de Gaulle's development and achievements, but on the history of industrial Lille.
