About
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.

Traditional museum
Aug 2021
A very traditional museum set in an underground tunnel beneath Albert - the damp must be a nightmare for conservation!
Unfortunately the film, which I assume set the narrative, was not operating for our visit and we did not discover the supporting app until we were well out of reach for any mobile signal.
The collection is full of shrapnel, guns, badges and insignia and a splendid array of rather creepy mannequins!

Nice little museum with lots of interesting artifacts. Download the app before you descend into the tunnel (before you lose internet connection).

An interesting little museum with lots of artifacts and stories that bring history to life without being too brutal for sensitive kids. It took around an hour to visit. It was worth downloading the app before descending into the tunnel.

There is a lot here, relics of the minutiae, uniforms, weaponry, all manner of things, set out in the tunnel right beside the great church, and leading to a remarkable and beautiful garden

Not the Best in the Area
Feb 2020 • Friends
This museum contains some interesting exhibits, but it is dated and doesn’t attemp to give the visitor an overall understanding of the battle or the war. The video consists of drone shots of various monuments in their current state, unlike other museums, which provide better historical detail. I don’t regret spending the time or money, but am glad we hit three other museums during our tour of the battlefield.

The best Museum of WWI in France!
Oct 2019
You are taken through tunnels with artefacts relating to the trenches of WWI. Very informative, very moving, a Museum that should be on everyone's number one list.

The Battle of the Somme Expertly Descibed
Nov 2019
This is the museum to go to for you need to know all about this infamous region during WW1.
The exhibits are well presented in a time line that explains it all. Both French and English are used to explain them and it is a place you could spend many hours if you read all the , sometimes very sad, reports and information given.
