This is an excellent museum. If you buy the joint ticket with Thiepval museum for €10 you get to see the other really good museum too. It is about 30 minutes drive away. The Peronne museum has a brilliant English language film that introduces you...More

This relatively new addition to the WW1 Museum listings is welcome and different. The perspective is very much person/community based. Clever use is made of uniform/ artefacts to illustrate the rapid development of the soldier's kit through the first years of war. An astonishing collection...More

A very interesting museum set out in a very novel way. This is well worth the visit. The displays and the interactive descriptions are very good. There is also a little cafe and shop on the site.

After visiting several museums and battlefields, there is not a lot of different material in this museum. We did enjoy seeing some of the videos about life during occupation and life after the war.

A very well set out museum. It tells the story of WW1 in an easy to understand way. There is a separate Aussie section which is very good. Staff were very attentive

The Otto Dix exhibit is the most moving and disturbing exhibit I have ever see relating the first world war. A must see if you are in Peronne.

The museum is in a small castle in the centre of this attractive small town. It's packed full of exhibits: a lot to read so more suitable for older children, but also displays of uniforms and some weapons. We got round the whole museum in...More
