Very modern museum which has been well designed to complement the Thiepval memorial. Great layout of exhibits which explain the military actions which took place in the area.

Although this musuem is small, it is very informative and helps to put the war and the Somme into a holistic setting. Afterwards can walk to the memorial or visit the excellent gift shop.

If the Thiepval monument wasn't enough, there is also a very good museum located within the visitor centre. Lots of artefacts on show.

This is the visitor reception to the Memorial and there is a small museum here. The free visitor presentation and shop etc are all very good and informative. The museum is fairly small and somewhat shy on exhibition material. Its simple format, whilst moving, leaves...More

The museum is a noble addition to the very sombre Thiepval memorial. It shows artifacts from the museum in an interesting manner and is very good at explaining the details of the Somme battle. Highly recommended to visit.
