Musée de la Grande Guerre - Museum of the Great War

Recommended
Behind its armoured doors, the Museum of the Great War seems to emerge out of the ground like a blockhouse in the middle of the Marne battlefields. A place of both remembrance and reconciliation, the museum boasts innovative displays which highlight the early fighting of 1914 and attempt to give an insight into the war of the trenches. A re-creation of a battlefield, a Marne taxi, tanks and aircraft are all part of this superb and varied collection of close to 50 000 objects and documents which explain the Great War and the personal stories of those who were part of it.
