Somme 1916 Museum, Albert, Picardy, France
The Somme 1916 Museum welcomes you to the heart of the First World War battlefields.We propose that you step a century into the past!
Descend 10 metres underground with your students and discover the lives of soldiers in the trenches. Dioramas, compelling displays, collections of weapons, moving artefacts and photographs make up this visit of an underground gallery, over 250 metres in length, which comes to an end in the “Heroes’ Gallery”, dedicated to nine people who marked the war.
Become totally immersed in the history with our guides who will take you to explore the Remembrance Trail and the battlefields, cemeteries, trenches and memorials that remind us of the tragic offensive of the 1st July 1916.
To end the day, we propose a presentation about the frontline soldiers’ equipment and a film projection about the First World War.
