This museum is fascinating. You enter a small building next to the basilica and head down a long set of steps to a long tunnel that runs under the town, throughout which are exhibits and dioramas of life in the trenches. You then re-emerge up...More

Housed under a church, this museum is sometimes known as Musee de Arbris - The Trench Museum. While it's primary function is to provide knowledge and a slight taste of trench warfare in WWI, the site was also used as a bomb shelter in WWII.

I wasn’t expecting much but very pleasantly surprised. The museum is under the church and part of the town ! There is a fascinating 3D movie to start the experience and you move along the underground maze of tunnels filled with actual artefacts from all...More

This museum was very interesting & I would recommend it if you are interested in the First World War, particularly the Battle of the Somme.

This WW1 museum is the best that I have seen in France. The underground location adds to the authenticity and the displays are exceptional. The entry fee is modest and the memorabilia shop carries many items that are worthy reminders of the conflict.

This is a great museum, housed under the church, you walk down the tunnels into the museum. Entrance is only 6Euro and it is well worth the fee. You start by watching a video, and then you explore the great displays - you could easily...More

Probably the best museum in the area. Situated in the crypt of the church that was virtually destroyed in the Somme fighting. Very moving and atmospheric location of exhibits with loads to see. Exits some distance away from the church into a very tranquil park.

I doubt it. This is an underground museum with a high throughput of coach parties and school groups.
