This was my fourth visit to the site of the Armistice. Each time, it never fails to impress, or move me. The museum alongside the train carriage is excellent, especially the 3D photo machines. Horrific images brought to life. Overall a very moving place.

An interesting well kept attraction and museum. Lots of interesting artefacts and information about the wars. The replica of the carriage is excellent. We enjoyed our visit and seeing all the original photos was amazing. Set in lovely grounds definitely worth a visit!

A large site with an assortment of interesting things to see plus a small museum. Plenty to occupy an hour or so or even half a day

A bit out of Compiegne, but worth going to visit. The small museum is well put together with lots of Stereoscope photographs that showed what World War I was really like. Very emotional and shows what a horrific war it was. Was worth seeing.

While remembering these soldiers, I felt strange. This place is full of emotion, with all these useless deaths ... It also demonstrates the nationalism on both sides and during both world wars.

We really enjoyed our visit here and when you look at all the displays it really transports you back in time. Both adults and kids enjoyed the displays.

An important stop on our tour of World War II sites and this was an amazing place to visit. I didn't realise how stirring this would feel but it was spine tingling to know what had happened here in both the first and second World...More
