Compiegne is the site where the armistice was signed to end hostilities on 11 November 1918 at 11:00 a.m.
In addition to the small memorial outside, there is a small museum.
The train carriage is a replica of the one from 1918. Adolph Hitler used the same carriage in 1940 to dictate terms of surrender when the Nazis overran France.
Inside the carriage is a table with name plates indicating where representatives sat in 1918.
There is a fee for entry into the museum. Toilets are in the back. There is a small gift shop as you exit the building.
