Nice to have a wander, but it's not the most exciting museum, and we didn't really have the time to read everything, so perhaps we didn't do it justice. The mannequins are fairly creepy too! It is in an underground bunker, which is quite interesting.

Museum in extant German bunker in centre of Calais. Absolutely riveting, especially the short film using original material. Well worth a visit

This is a moving experience showing how soldiers suffered during WW1. Close to the Menin Gate, which we also went to.
