  • This museum has a lot of excellent displays, including audio visual. Unfortunately, some of the big audio visual and the temporary exhibition had poor (or no) English provision. The best part of the exhibits for me however were reading about the soldiers difficulties returning home to their families, and the focus on the letters. This was moving.
  • AS a child i was 12 years old when my family and i toured the battlefields of Verdun.My Dad was stationed at Verdun from 1966-1967 in the US Army and we would go out on the French country side and see all the historical sites. There were country road at that time that had chain barriers across the because there was so many l live artillery shells that had not been cleared out of that area. I think the Trench of Bayonets and the ossuary impressed me the most. It is a battlefield and historical that is well worth the time for a visit. God rest all the soldiers on both sides that died there.
