Charles de Gaulle was born in Lille on November 22nd 1890 in the house of his maternal grandparents at 9 Rue Princesse.
Listed as a Historic Monument, the house was bought in 1967 by a group of friends of the General. Now a museum, it recreates the atmosphere of a typical late 19th century home of the Northern French industrial middle class. The family keepsakes and personal objects on display (cradle, christening robe, Saint-Cyr sword, etc.) are a reminder of De Gaulle’s younger days.
A recently developed multimedia centre also looks back over the great statesman’s historic work.

The museum is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 10am to 12pm and from 2pm to 5pm, Sunday from 1.30pm to 5pm. Closed on Monday and Tuesday.
