I visited the fort about 10 years ago and again in 2017. The changes inside the museum in the last 10 years are excellent with the exhibits displayed much more sympathetically and better organised than before. My only criticism would be the lack of a...More

Stopped to see this fort outside of Reims and did not know what to expect. It was built after the Franco-Prussian War and reminded me of a Maginot Line fort although not as mechanized. It was very impressive and included historical information that put the...More

I was pleasantly surprised by this museum. It was well laid-out and had interesting exhibits. The location is also nice, with a view overlooking the countryside. Worth a visit!

A good visit to an actual site that was used in the second world war which is converted in a museum. A vast display cases of amours and guns used overtime.

Nice point of view to see the landscape of the area. There are some trails for short hikes and the museum is quite interesting. It is a well preserved site and the history is cleverly presented.
