  • I coupled my admission to this museum with the one at Thiepval for a discounted rate. Both are not too far from each other and worth visiting. An impressive stone facade greets you upon entry...

  • Nice museum. Spacious rooms with well laid out exhibits. All writing is tri-lingual (English, French and German), addressing the usual drawback for me when in a foreign museum. Not a lot to engage...

  • Probably better than the imperial War museum if you like WW1 history. Great interactive screens to show the progress (or lack of it) of the war. Great examples of uniform, equipment and personal items. All information translated into French, German and English. Nice grounds and a castle with a lot of history. Good value €25 for a family ticket.
  • Extraordinarily well presented WWI museum. Spacious yet harmonic, with a wide selection of artefacts, paintings, posters and digital contents. Uniforms and military paraphernalia are carefully curated. In addition, the venue is a restored and extended chateau, which makes the visit even more rewarding. A hidden gem.
