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

Excellent museum with audio visual and actual exhibits of the battle of the Somme. The museum is in Albert is close to the front line and is next the Basilica which was raised to the ground before and after the battle. Very informative with English French ab German translations. The museum is built in an underground tunnel which gives an eerie feel but adds to it overall delivery. We’ll worth a visit as a starting point any SOMME tour as it sets the scene well and gives great context
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.
