The Musée des Années 1930 can be found in Boulogne and it was founded in 1939 upon the initiative of Mr. Morizet and Dr. Bezançon. They gathered numerous documents and artifacts by themselves. The museum has been open to the public since 1958. The 1930's collections are especially valued, along with the history of the city, its industries (automotive and aviation), his film studies and sports venues. The museum has a collection of 450 paintings, 2,000 drawings, 800 sculptures and more important pieces of decoration and furniture.
