Vauban museum - Neuf-Brisach
Set up in 1957, the Vauban Museum occupies the ground floor of the Belfort Gate. Going through the two rooms, the visitor will learn about the fortress of Neuf-Brisach, the last fortification built by Vauban before he died. The displays will tell him something about the history of the town, from the date of its construction in 1699 to the present day times.
A raised-relief plan shows the fortress such as it was conceived by Vauban; it is a faithful copy of the model on display in the Relief Model Museum in Paris.
Among other interesting documents, the visitor will ind the plans of the fortification and the techniques of construction; the layout of the various buildings; a bust statue of Vauban made by Coysevox and documentation about the 1870 siege and WWII.
