Cultural heritage - Saint-Tropez

Musée de la Gendarmerie et du Cinéma

The Gendarmerie and Film Museum invites you to explore the history of this building which, before becoming an iconic location following the shooting of the films about the French police, housed the Saint-Tropez brigade from 1879 to 2003.

The visit continues with an explanation of the representation of the gendarme in the films, followed by an introduction to the history of cinema in Saint-Tropez. This museum space reveals the numerous films shot in the Var peninsula as well as the different professions linked to the cinema. You can then set off on your holiday to explore the myth and reality of Saint-Tropez through the cinema. On the ground floor, the museum has a temporary exhibition room.


On the first floor, the public can discover the exact reconstruction of the offices of the Saint-Tropez gendarmerie, with the gendarmes' lockers and the colour codes reproduced identically. The evolution of the gendarmerie since the 19th century is also evoked, with archive pieces dedicated to the creation of the gendarmerie, service weapons of the time and, of course, film reminders.


The exhibition continues with a cinema hall from the 1950s with artists' dedications, a life-size bronze sculpture of Louis de Funès, before arriving at a cinema room where film extracts and artists' interviews are projected.

The next floor also has its share of surprises: a reconstruction of the Nationale 7, a space dedicated to the world of culture and festivities from the 1950s to today, and finally the dressing rooms of Brigitte Bardot and Romy Schneider. What a way to end... in style!

On the ground floor, the visit of the museum opens on a space dedicated to temporary exhibitions.


The Museum has the Tourism and Handicap label. The facilities are adapted to welcome people with special needs.
(access for people in wheelchairs, for the blind and for the hearing impaired).
