This is an excellent small museum with lots of war artifacts and memorabilia. Although a bit expensive it has the virtue of being compact and it does not take up a lot of time to view the exhibits. A nice bar and cafe are onsite.

We visited on a wet Saturday and it was possible to capture a little of the atmosphere of the trenches in the forest.

Walking in the wake of history on the 100 year anniversary weekend. Certainly brings things home to you. Well worth a visit to see how things were.

This is a real mixture of fascinating old photos (though be warned, some are rather unpleasant) and a museum done on the cheap. For instance, a couple of the mannequins used to exhibit uniforms are clearly female. If you are in the area, perhaps worth...More

We enjoyed our trip to see the museum and trenches. The museum is a collection of artifacts from the war, including artillery, photos, and uniforms. They have sets of 3D photos you can look at when you first arrive. Outside, you can walk in the...More
