Situated at the Heart of the Battle of the Somme (1914/1918), the Somme 1916 Museum of ALBERT traces the lives of soldiers in the trenches during the Franco-British offensive in 1916. At 10 meters below ground and 250 meters in length, you will discover realistic and grasping scenes of the daily lives of our soldiers. Mannequins are brought to life through twelve realistic scenes transporting you to the past. Time passes but the memory remains. The museum is translated into 4 languages using panels (French-English-Dutch–German), and can also be guided by one of our guides in any of these languages.

Loved my 2 hours spent hear in Albert, the museum is very interesting and informative with some brilliant artefacts from the first world war, a must if you are in the Somme.

I came away awestruck. I learnt more about this terrible period of history, than I ever learnt at school. It should be a "must" for all to see.

If visiting or staying in Albert I recommend you visit this museum. The displays are well presented and provide a graphic description of life and death in the Battle of the Somme. We owe that generation so much. Lest we Forget.

Museum is entirely along underground tunnels which were built under the city to communicate out of sight of the Germans.Loads of interesting items and war scenarios.A must visit if going to see WW1 history.
