Everyone who has seen the famous movies about the gendarmes of Saint Tropez with the hilarious Luis de Funes will instantly recognize the building that today hosts the Gendarmerie and Cinema Museum of Saint Tropez. The building that was made famous by movies stopped operating as a real gendarmerie in 1934 and since then has been used by the city of Saint Tropez as a museum. The museum’s permanent exhibition has two main themes: The history of the Saint Tropez gendarmerie corps and their building and the myth and reality of the famed Saint Tropez through movies that portrayed it. It starts with the interest caused by the international popularity of the hilarious movies. The city also attempts, through the exhibits in the museum, to highlight the rich and diverse history of cinema in Saint Tropez, not only about Saint Tropez. Many movies are still being created in Saint Tropez and its beautiful surrounds. The museum also hold occasional temporary exhibits on different themes linked to the town.
