Description

The three-room apartment where Georges Clemenceau lived for 35 years until his death on 24 November 1929. A museum in 1931, it reopened its doors in 2015 after five months of restauration works carried out for the Centenary of the Great War. The study and hall in the apartment of the 'Tiger' were the subjects of the restauration site. On the first floor, a documentation gallery presents numerous objects that retrace his life and work: portraits, photos, books, journals and manuscripts, but also the famous overcoat and gaiters that he used to wear during his visits to the Front during the First World War. Georges Clemenceau, known as the 'Tiger', was one of the politicians who had the most impact on the Third Republic, and was also a defender of Dreyfus in the Dreyfus affair, a writer, a friend of Claude Monet and a traveller until the age of 88. His story is fascinating and multifaceted.
