A very well laid out museum experience of WW1. Besides many and varied memoribila of equipment used etc particularly poignant were the films of actors describing their experiences as if WW1 soldiers. Allow time for seeing these actors. A must.

A must see for anyone in the region. All that you need to make it worth while to visit is empathy and curiosity. If you don't have those, you'd likely never even be in this city.

Good use of interactive exhibits to share the stories of soldiers of the great war and the true impact and horrors of this war. It is a good value for the money and is handicap accessible. If in the region and must visit

A great and very well present Museum, I was captivated and spend more time there than I had anticipated. It is clearly well researched and very impressively presented. Put aside a good couple of hours. Fascinating exhibit on excavating WW1 sites is worth the visit...More
