Historial of the Great War
An extraordinary museum which gives you all possibilities to understand the impact of this total war for French, German and British. It considers not only the
battles, the exhibition is more the place to understand the war societies, the influence in economy, education, the handling of grief, to keep contact to war prisoners, to meet other cultures and
to forget the fighting for a few hours behind the lines. The museum has also a huge collection of music instruments handcrafted by the soldiers on leaf and a big number of art works.
By the way, this is also the museum where my love story started, because initially I came for this museum to France; so of course it is a must see site.
As the Australians liberated Péronne in 1918 their presence is honored by a sepcial exhibition room.
The town of Peronne can be part of a guided tour with focus on the WWI period.
