Arrived at 10am (opens at 9:30am). The adult price is a bit steep at 9€ each but you can pay 10€ and get entry to the Thiepval museum included. The lady taking money spoke English and was very friendly. We chose to look at the...More

Quite a large museum with many exhibits, including full uniforms & kit. There is a small cafe and a well stocked souvenir shop on site.

Rather disappointed. The exhibits are well laid out, but there are few of them. Many electric exhibits are not working and we were not offered audio guides. Cinema show is in French with no subtitle in any other european or global languages. Not really worth...More

Good exhibits, an interesting visit, the only chritism was that the 30 minute film was only in French, when sub titles at least would have been most helpful.

This is one of the best of the high-profile museums devoted to the First World War. I do wish that the designers of the fairly recently refurbished display in London's Imperial War Museum had taken some tips here - this is so much better. The...More

Beautifully laid out and with so many exhibits to look at, this museum really is worth a second (or third) visit. It tells the story of the First World War from its origins to the peace treaty and beyond. The area of Otto Dix drawings...More

A good little Museum that tries to cover all base in French, English & German. Some really excellent exhibits and gives great background for the uninitiated ! See the photo of the Chateau after the bombardment and compare to today's beauty !

On our first day of our WW1 battlefield tour (doing it ourselves) we came to Peronne and although we didnt realise it beforehand, coming to this museum was a great start to our understanding of what the war was about. The displays (in English too)...More

Situated in a moated, fortified building, this museum shows context and complexity to help the viewer understand the enormity of the politics, scope and scale of the Great War. Very well done. Highly recommended.
