The memorial museum at the French military cemetery was erected on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. It is a memorial for the dead French soldiers, but also for the Macedonian civilian population who also suffered during the war. The museum is part of the French military cemetery in Bitola, which is the largest military cemetery in the Republic of Macedonia with 6128 identified and more than 7,000 unidentified remains of French soldiers.

The memorial museum shows the lives of the soldiers and the civilian population through photographs of Manaki Brothers, dolls featuring soldiers and their life stories, personal objects, and particularly interesting is the relief map showing the Macedonian Front.

In front of the museum’s entrance, on the wall of the keeper’s house, there is a copy of the monument which until 1938 existed on Dobro Pole – the place where the breakthrough of the Macedonian Front occurred.
