It contains nearly 250 original manuscripts and letters, including the cease-fire order signed by Dwight D. Eisenhower on May 7, 1945, poems of Paul Éluard, and a love letter by Théodore Géricault. The museum contains documents from authors like Voltaire and Tolstoy, musicians and composers like Mozart and Chopin, and royalty like Charles VI and Henri IV.
