I went to this museum as part of a tour. It’s twinned with The Theipval Memorial. If you’re going independently of a tour allow plenty of time, you could spend hours in there.

Tells the story of the Somme battles as well as a history of the Western front in World War 1. Plenty of interesting artifacts, and an interesting mural on the walls outlining the 1916 battle.

Really peaceful and impressive memorial. The museum has interactive search facilities and although quite small is very modern and well laid out. Would recommend touring the local area also - parking is free and on-site.
