Peronne Museum



One of the most popular attractions in Peronne is the Museum of the Great War, which contains a range of artifacts and memorabilia from World War I. The museum is located in the former castle of the town, which was built in the 12th century. The museum houses a large collection of artifacts, including weapons, photographs, and uniforms, which provide an insight into the history of the conflict and the lives of those who fought in it.

In addition to the Museum of the Great War, there are several other places to visit in and around Peronne. These include the Château de Peronne, an impressive castle built in the 11th century, which is now a museum that houses a collection of tapestries and other artifacts. There is also the Musée Perret, which showcases the works of the French architect Auguste Perret.

The entrance is through the gateway you can see in the first photo.There is some parking at the front but it was full when we got there. If you turn right at the stop sign then next left you can park there on another car park round the side of the building.

The Historial de la Grande Guerre Museum

When you go through the entrance of the Chateau de Péronne to get to the museum. You go up an old stone stairway that leads to the very modern museum. The Historial de la Grande Guerre Museum was built in 1992, by architect Henri Ciriani. The building is a mixture of white cement walls and glass.Some of the exhibits are laid out in what looks like open military graves.

I found the museum a little short on content and the items were to clean almost unused. I thought the museum at Albert was better it had more items some still with the mud from the trenches but that is my personal view you must judge for your self
