Using contemporary museum techniques featuring an exceptional collection of iconographic material (maps, archival photographs, period films) and iconic objects from around the world, this international interpretation center presents the history of the Great War on the soil of Nord-Pas de Calais. Designed by architect Pierre-Louis Faloci, the building is structured around black concrete cubes called "chapels". The exhibition provides a chronological and thematic overview of the major stages of the conflict: the war of movement and the trench system, the murderous offensives and occupation of the North, the offensives of 1918 and the death at the front.
