About
Why come to visit the museum? In addition to the duty of memory, the Museum of the Great War presents the war of 14-18 through the objects and documents of the collection. The museum is accessible to all ages and offers visiting tools and activities suitable for the whole family: children's area, game book, audioguides, children's area, workshops ... At the origin of the museum, there is a man, Jean-Pierre Verney, passionate historian, who gathered for nearly 50 years objects and documents to tell the story of the First World War. In 2005, the Pays de Meaux bought this exceptional collection of more than 50 000 pieces and decided to build a museum to enhance its history! Today, the collection has more than 70,000 objects

Great place to visit
Jul 2021
My nephew loves history, so we decided to go for this museum. It is a great place to visit. It is quite big, and we were blessed to get there early morning and met a lovely gentleman in a war outfit. He explained it all to us. He moves around the museum and gladly answers any question anyone may have.

The museum is full of interesting artifacts and also shows some interesting little movies on the subject.

It is a great place to do with kids or with people who are interested on the subject.

The souvenirs are fairly priced, and they have a large selection of books for sale on the subject of war.

Great collections, great exhibit layout
Oct 2019
If you want to just explore the story, you walk through the lower half of the exhibit area. If you want to see more artifacts, you walk into the upper half of the exhibit area. You can spend as much or as little time as you want. Perfect! AND it's one of, if not THE best Great War collections in Europe. .

Stunning WW1 museum. Excellent collection of so many WW1 artefacts, so much information and in various language. Visually stunning and educational. Really worth a visit, Covid safe and a good space to walk around, hardly anyone here.

Excellent, modern museum in historic region and near Paris!
Nov 2019
In our many trips to France I've wanted to explore the WWI historical ground a little, but always the major sites were a little too far from Paris, well beyond Reims. But the westernmost advances of the invasion were quite close to Paris. Here, in the area of Meaux, the French army turned and fought the invaders to a stand still, and a partial retreat. The relatively new and very modern Musee de la Grand Guerre provides an important destination and resource for WWI history. The main visit path concentrates on modest number of artifacts, but presented in engaging reconstructions of battle environments. Particularly notable is the use of historical video and sound in the background of simulated bunkers and trenches. A series of separate rooms provides more nearly "exhaustive" exhibits with large numbers of objects - imagine 50 different kinds of hand grenades - focussing on multiple themes of military experience. We spent 2 hours there. It is not possible to describe a museum about WWI as an uplifting experience, but it was very informative and interesting.
