Meaux Museum France

Trench Exhibit, Meaux Museum


The Meaux Museum contains more than 65,000 items from the Great War, 1914-1918.

The objects are quite diverse and may be viewed to tell the story of the war thematically and chronologically.

Webley Revolver













British Grenades















The Museum has special exhibits. When I visited in 2018, a special exhibit focused on American contributions.


























As with many museums, the lighting and reflections off glass cases make it difficult to view the items or take viewable photographs. However, they do have a fine collection of uniforms, artwork, and other objects.



Example of Lighting Difficulty














Fortunately, several large objects are in open areas.


























The museum is open most days. There is an admission fee.
See the website for current hours and prices.
