Musee Somme 1916 Admission Ticket

The museum is accessible in 4 languages (French- English - German - Dutch). The struggles that took place in the Somme in 1916 were one of the most terrible battles of the First World War. It was a conflict in which a large number of different nationalities participated and sustained heavy losses. From our entrance hall next to the Basilica, visitors enter a 250 meters long tunnel that is 10 meters below surface. As you leave the tunnel you enter our souvenir shop and ultimately Albert’s town park. Here WW1 scenes in a series of fifteen different alcoves tell the tale of trench warfare in the Somme. We also have 25 display cabinets in which you can study all kinds of WW1 artifacts and weaponry. Sound and light effects add to the experience, taking you back to the time of the Great War. The final part of your visit is the Gallery of Heroes, dedicated to nine individuals who distinguished themselves during the war. The exit of the museum being in the public garden of the city, you will be able to discover the Arboretum where also floes the Ancre river with its cascades.
