The location is excellent as the historic castle facade now houses the museum, it translates the period of the older uses into the WW1 era. Internally the layout is excellent and the exhibits are well presented and explained, a really useful and interesting place to...More
In a restored, war damaged old castle, this relatively new museum presents an extremely interesting exhibition on WW1, focused on the experience of soldiers and individuals without any great emphasis on the weapons of war.
Very interesting museum showing the situation in Europe before the war (1914 -1918) ,during and after the war. There was a special exhibition until 2 December 218 on Family life during the war. This exhibition is very interesting but emotionally very hard when reading the...More
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

I would plan on an afternoon or a morning...tough for me to answer because I am into military history and enjoy the varied exhibits ranging from vehicles to period music, uniforms, etc. If you find it that you don't need that much time there are some lovely cafes nearby and some nice walks you can take. Peronne is a beautiful town and the museum is right in town.
As for closures and operating hours I would Google the museum website and find the latest information there. We were there in early Sept so hours and closure days may have been different than they will be in June.
