Took my grandchildren for a trip here. Well worth it. They were full of interest and only 7 and 4. History is worth the time to teach. Very good set up, lots of good info and photos etc. Spent 2 hours no problem.

Don’t underestimate what one fellow reviewers called a little museum. It’s worth 60-90 minutes as all the stories are well told and the collection of old stereoscopic photos is just amazing. Made my day being here

This was an interesting site to visit, and the museum was pretty good, not particularly large but interesting nonetheless. They were clearly in the process of expanding the museum, so no doubt it will be better in the future, with more to see and clearer...More

On my way to Paris I decided to take a detour to visit the Armistice site at Compiegne. I duly keyed in the address on my Satnav, as was given on their website, only to find it took me to a complete dead end. I...More
