In addition to an audiovisual, the classroom has striking panels, duplicates of weapons of the time and several mockups. The largest of these mockups is impressive: over 5 meters long, it contains 5.200 figures of just over 1 centimeter tall, representing with high accuracy one of the key moments of battle.
