We were here on Armistice day, what an emotional experience! This is a must visit place, and is kept in immaculate condition, you need to give yourself plenty of time to see everything

The Glen is a true memorial to both the resiliency of the French and to the thought process of Hitler.

Excellent informative museum that has been extended and improved over the years. My kids - 7 & 11 were interested throughout. Cheap admission - three and five euros. Thoroughly recommended.

Although a replica of the original the carriage looked very authentic, it was well presented with lots of information on who sat where and their roles in the armistice. The rest of the museum was well set out with lots of displays and information.

We visited the museum late Sept. Museum and grounds are currently going through renovation work (we presumed as part of the Armistice Commemorations next month). The history of the train, before, during the Armistice and WW2 is fascinating. Museum apart from train is also excellent...More

So much history here not just for the signing of the Armistice in 1918 but what happened afterwards and to the original coach. Cant recommend this enough.

Suspect that a cab will be only viable solution, cycling could work but it’s probably about 6-7 miles from the station. Hope this helps.
