Yes, I know of it. Been there several times. But we're not sure exactly what you're asking. ??

Arrow Place you might visit in Verdun (not only museums)

Hello arkanis!

There is more than one museum about the "Battle of Verdun" in the Verdun area! Below I added some websites concerning this place:

Verdun Tourisme, réservations hôtelières, visites guidées, circuits et séjours, informations

Ossuaire de Douaumont

Musée Première Guerre mondiale

Romagne '14-'18 : Informal museum on the day-to-day life of the soldiers in World War I - Home

CENTRE MONDIAL DE LA PAIX

If you have never been in Verdun before I would recommend a visit at the modern Tourist office of Verdun. The have lots of leaflets and brochures in different languages and they are usually well informed about the places and events.

The Oussaire de Douaumont is another of the important places. It is the central place to remember the dead soldiers of this war. It includes a high tower from where you have a great view over the battlefield and a small museum.

The Memorial de Verdun is approximately in the centre of the battlefield. They have a modern technical equipment and magnificent pieces of the time of WW1. Additionally they occasionally have specialised small military exhibitions (last time I visited a fine exhibition about WW1 telephone and radio equipment).

I really recommend the littel private museum Romagne 14-18 of Jean-Paul de Vries in Romagne-sous-Montfaucon. It is only a mile away from the big American Cemetary and Mr. de Vries has a huge collection of things he found during his trips across the battlefields (including the original tombstone of my greatuncle!).

In the Centre Mondial de la Paix the often have exhibitions in connection with WW1. It is loated next to the cathedral of Verdun. Additionally you can visit the huge undergroud citadel under the main hill of the city.

Places I would recommend to visit are the Fort de Douaumont and the Fort de Vaux (Tours inside of the forts are available in French, English, German and probably other languages). Additionally the Ouvrage de Froideterre is a place that should be visited.

OK, I forgot to mention many other places that are worth being visited ....

Please ask if there are any questions.

Volker, he must have been referring to the Verdun memorial itself and the human bones beneath it. I'm sure he'll be more than happy with any of your suggestions, though. Those are all the high points.
