  • Nice little museum with lots of interesting artifacts. Download the app before you descend into the tunnel (before you lose internet connection).

  • Must visit for history/WWI lovers!! Great collection and reconstruction of the horrible trench war. Three recommendations: 1) remove the 3D, just show normal 2D. 2) show movie in french, but add english subtitle, so you don't have to wait for 15 mins everytime. 3) sell more souvenirs of tiny action figure soldiers.
  • Excellent museum located right in the centre of Albert. Lots of exhibits and information from the battle of the Somme and the dioramas give you some idea what conditions were like in the trenches.
