I enjoyed this museum and I began to feel like I had been there and what was involved in living and fighting from the trenches. Great place to visit more »
Excellent and informative, they can trace what happened to your relatives who died in WW1, where exactly they were killed and where their memorial is situated. Well worth a visit, if you are trying to trace your relative contact them first. I received maps, details of troop movements up to the date my uncle died and exactly where he was at the time of his death!!
History everyone should know. 1/2 million died for
