The Gendarmerie and Cinema Museum invites you to discover the history of its building. Before becoming a symbolic place thanks to the movies about French Police Force (with Louis de Funès), this building welcomed the real Police Force from 1879 to 2003.
You carry on the visit with an explanation of the picture of the police in the cinema field, then an introduction of the cinema history in Saint-Tropez. This particular space of the museum reveals the movies realized in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, but also the different positions available around the cinema field.
Next stop during the visit, you’ll discover the myth versus the reality of Saint-Tropez through the cinema industry. On the ground floor, there is the Art Exhibition Hall.
The first exhibition is called “Brigitte Bardot, un mythe de Saint-Tropez", exhibition of photographies until the 14th of January 2018.
The Museum of gendarmerie and cinema Saint-Tropez offers free creative workshops for children from 8 years every Wednesday from November 7, 2018 from 14h to 16h.
