“No English”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We visited this place and paid to go into the museum. All the text and signage is in French. There is no English language. It would appear that the British army did not take part in The Great War. It was very disappointing.

“Hmm.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Thought provoking if nothing else. Not a massive site, but certainly a massive stimulant. Makes for an interesting 10 minutes.

“A piece of history worth a detour if in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

We were on a return journey from Pierrefonds to Abbeville and called here for a short visit. The museum is quite small but packed with all the relevent information about the two occaisions this hidden location was used in the 1st and 2nd world wars.

“Worth a visit if you're in the area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

There's not a lot to see and it is mostly in French, but definitely worth going along to see if you happen to be in the area.

“Easy to miss but well worth the time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012 via mobile

To be honest we stumbled across this as we were driving along reading the old travel guide. Not overly well promoted but it is a wonderful piece of history. The place where World War ended (11o'clock on the 11th day of the 11th month etc) and then subsequently where France surrendered to Adolf Hitler in 1940, in the same railway carriage 20 years later. The museum is very cheap but really informative. Don't miss the array of 3D photos near the back of the museum. You can't help but be moved by the photos. Well worth the visit. Also very quiet, peaceful and away from the crowds.
