Very didactic, very richly documented, with rare objects and numerous testimonies of the period, we discover the most intimate aspects of the Great War. The role of women is highlighted, the differences in the techniques of the belligerents are exposed. The military equipment is very complete the terrible fate of the soldiers is well exposed. You learn a lot, to visit absolutely.

One of the newest museums dedicated to the memory of those who fought in WW1. A new and fresh presentation.
A fascinating place. A beautiful building, giving a great insight into the First World war in the Marne. And also a great way of seeing the war from the French perspective.
