Small private museum but was a good one to do with the evening walk down to Ramparts Cemetery ... friendly in the bar ... The memorable feature was the size of the fake rats ! Pretty horrid picture too of them strung up dead in WW1 ...

A nice museum with interesting exhibits, about as near as you may get to being in the trenches... but not :) It took us a while to work out you had to go in through the attached bar, but it was only a few euros and well worth a visit.

Go for the museum, stay for the peace beer! Staff in the bar very friendly and welcoming. The museum is small but informative and a bit quirky. The peace beer is fantastic. If they were selling it in kegs my kids would have lost their seats home. Looking forward to a repeat visit. Did I mention to try the beer?

Not immediately obvious how to get to it (through the back of the pub), the museum is not big but is a bit unusual. Combined with a drink and a walk on the ramparts made it a worthwhile visit.

Situated at the back of a Pub , this little Museum is very different to the usual ones and because of that worth a visit. Just outside the Museum up a footpath by the Lille Gate is the Ramparts CWG with beautiful views over the lake.Combine the two together for a worth while visit.

Nice to combine with a visit to the ramparts cemetery which is adjacent. Small but interesting museum accessed from the back yard of the bar

Much more than we expected...well prepared displays...good value...only 30m mins so needs to be part of a plan for a day/half a day but can easily be linked to a ramparts walk. Plus...nice bar and very friendly staff...Kind regards, Dave

this is a small museum, but still worth a visit and a beer outside before or after walking the ramparts. the noise inside and the layout gives you a small idea of things, but lets hope we never have to experience it for real.there are some intersting items not only inside the museum but also the bar.
