“Please don't bother!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Was directed to this exhibition from the (Closed for refurbishment) Verdun monument - Apparently part of their collection is now housed in this exhibition (Where?) - When we arrived the reception asked question in fast flowing French and seem to take no notice of our replies - We paid 22 Euros to enter and seemingly paid for all three exhibitions (2 adults and one child) - The first of which - about WW1 - was OK, the pictures fascinating but very overdone and lots of money spent, with little English translation and absolutely no context - not really worth visiting - whilst there, as we had paid, we went to the other two and frankly they are a waste of time and money - Modern art at its very worst and an exhibition about the falling of the Berlin wall - Which I felt was a little inappropriate in this geographic area and due to the nature of why the wall appeared in the first place! Total waste of time and money - Just don't bother - many more places locally that you can visit for free!!

“Centre Mondiale de la paix - closed for lunch!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

We wanted to visit this on our trip to Verdun but unfortunately having walked around and found this, it was closed for lunch. This is something that I find immensely irritating about France. This is the height of the tourist season (end July) for us, and yet a major attraction is closed for lunch. You would have thought they could have found someone to cover. At the end of the day, this history needs to be shared by everyone, young and old, from all nationalities. Very disappointed. We didn't bother returning.
