With a collection that is unique in Europe, the Museum of the Great War, Pays de Meaux offers a new perspective on the first global conflict, through innovative displays which illustrate the huge social changes and upheaval it caused. These attractive displays open up the Great War to people from all different backgrounds. From the reconstruction of a battlefield to the planes and tanks in the main gallery, through projections, soundscapes and interactive displays, the museum plays on visitors' senses (items to touch and handle, etc.) using the most up-to-date techniques. Over a space of 3,000m², the permanent exhibition looks at all aspects of the conflict, showing that 1914-1918 was the period when the world moved from the 19th to the 20th century. The main tour lasts around 1 hr 15 mins and provides complete immersion in history. Visitors leave the present behind, and are plunged into the 1870s, back when the initial tensions (French loss of the Alsace-Moselle region and the desire for revenge, naval, colonial and economic rivalries, the separation into two opposing blocs, the arms race, etc.) that contributed to the onset of the First World War began to surface, then continuing up to 1939, the eve of World War Two.Read more
