<< Back to Perlé


On the west side of the road. Museum This museum keeps the memory to the 385th Bombardment Group alive. Objects from crashsites donated by veterans make up a large part of this collection. On 13 July 1944 two B-17 bombers of the 385th Bomb Group of the US Air Force collided over the town of Perlé. With a nearby monument, the museum is dedicated to the 18 airmen who lost their lives. The museum, housed in the rooms of an old school, has artifacts and parts of the B-17 bombers, and gives an insight into what life was like for air crew of the B-17s during the Second World War.
