An interesting well kept attraction and museum. Lots of interesting artefacts and information about the wars. The replica of the carriage is excellent. We enjoyed our visit and seeing all the original photos was amazing. Set in lovely grounds definitely worth a visit!

A bit out of Compiegne, but worth going to visit. The small museum is well put together with lots of Stereoscope photographs that showed what World War I was really like. Very emotional and shows what a horrific war it was. Was worth seeing.
