Visited after visiting belleau wood and
was taken how sombre and respectful the place was. The security guards were really friendly and lots on information in the visitor centre..watch out for the 17.00 closing..they do ask you to leave!!
The Cimetiere Americain Asine-Marne is a wonderful place to visit. You will want to block off more than an hour if you wish to see the whole property. The Americain Cimetiere Belleau Wood is within a five minute drive from the Cimetiere Americain Aisne-Marne. Both...More

My wife and I came here when driving to see the nearby Belleau Wood Marine Monument. Another reason for stopping here was to see what information I could discover about a local 19 year-old Marine who died as a result of battles in the Chateau-Thierry...More
Beautiful place. Beware of sinister locals who break into cars. Spent 30 minutes inside cemetery paying respects. Walked outside to find my window smashed and all our luggage gone. Police took over an hour to arrive. But... caretaker and security guard were very helpful and...More
