As mentioned by other reviewers, this is a ride on an autonomous cart with ambient narration in French and quirky headset narration in other languages. It uses reenactments (which I do not like personally) and staging in a small part of the citadelle tunnels to...More

The headsets provided for non French speakers are kludgy and subject to coming unplugged in which case they're impossible to reconnect in the ride in the dark. While it was interesting to see the inside of the citadel frankly I'd recommend skiping this ride and...More

We went because the receptionist at the hotel recommended it. A silly Disney type ride with audio in French. All of the signage about the history of the place before you get on the ride are in French. They give you headsets which don't work...More

This underground train tour through the Verdun citadel is very well done, both for kids and adults. Gives a good overview of daily life in this underground staff shelter during WW I without becoming boring for kids. Staff was a bit grumpy, but a la...More

Unlike most fort museums, this one is a bit more theatrical. You are sent through in a small car, so there is no walking at all. It stops for short "re-enactments" of fort life, and you are given an electronic guide in your preferred language....More

This is an opportunity missed. The fortress itself isvery impressive. And while I applaud the attempt to make a visit here involving and entertaining, this 25 minute ride is neither. There are video reenactments and some staging of the tunnels that you pass through to...More

This is a little Train ride that goes through the underground of a historic fortress. Although the fort was constructed by Vauban and has a long and interesting history, the ride tells none of that, focusing on the area of Verdun in WWI. Which would...More

The building was started originally in 1624 and in the late 19th century around 5 miles of underground passages were built. Now it's an inexpensive museum which will occupy an hour of your time. Regardless of the weather I advise you take a jacket as...More
