  • Visited a number of WWI museums across France and Belgium, and this one is by far the best. Great experience, especially with the trenches recreated both inside and outside. Excellent range of WWI...

  • I've always been interested in history and the world wars. But since I've been playing Battlefield 1 recently, that interest has grown even more. It's cool to see how these things look in real life, and then it hits you, this war was brutal. The Museum gives you an excellent look at the past and delivers on all areas. There are trenches and dugouts to walk through, plenty of uniforms and weapons and scattered between all that are some movies of survivors, most of which made my jaw drop.
  • Wonderful museum. The audio guide system is excellent. The kids also found it very interesting. The reconstructed trenches etc are terrific. Highly recommended.
