The short documentary was informative and good to watch before seeing the exhibit. The newspaper articles, uniforms and other items were interesting, but the room where the document was signed was by far the highlight. We enjoyed looking at all the maps on the wall and seeing it exactly how it would have been at the time. The museum is reasonably priced for what you get.

Most people won't find much of interest here. There's a short film, which is OK, then the centrepiece table in the room where the instrument of surrender was signed, which is disappointing, and apart from that just a few uniformed dummies, newspapers of the day announcing victory, a tail-fin (French, commemorating the French sacrifice), some posters, maps, etc, and that's about that.

Small but perfectly formed with the map room where surrender was signed and a short film. Just beyond the train station, you can get to museum via station underpass.

I enjoyed this museum a lot. Its very affordable, comes with a short movie and the room is exactly as it was when the surrender was signed. Very cool! If you enjoy history this is a great little museum. It does not take to long and is close to train station if you are not staying in Reims.

Well worth visiting a bit of an effort to get there but we need to see these places of such history.
