  Historial de la Grande Guerre
by Dabs

To the east of Amiens is the city of Peronne where we visited the Historial de la Grande Guerre (Historial Museum of the Great War). I didn't think this museum was at interesting as the In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres, Belgium but it is worth a stop if you are interested in WWI history. The museums consists of display cases with war memorabilia, short films and some documents and displays with uniforms and supplies that the men would have had during the Battle of the Somme. There's also a display of Otto Dix drawings and a movie which I didn't watch. The display cases are trilingual-English, French and German.

Open every day from 10 am to 6 pm, closed every year from mid-December to mid-January. Admission is Adults: 7.50 ?, over 60: 6.20 ?, children (6-18 years old), veterans, teachers, students, employment seekers: 3.80 ?, Family pass (2 adults and up to 2 children): 20 ?
