Fascinating not only for the WWI artifacts and history, but for the building in which it is housed -- a bombed out fortress. So the war artifacts are housed, literally, within another artifact. Definitely worth a visit! Closed between noon and 2 pm.

Fascinating collection of articles from WWI. It was included as part of a guided tour of the area. If your on your own, not sure whether the museum offers tours. Would be a lot less interesting without a guided tour.

Went there on a rainy foggy cold day at the end of May. I swear that place is brimming with ghosts. Glad my husband was with me, I would not have stepped out of the car by myself! Couldn't even look at the oversized cutout...More
