ONLINE POT TO HELP THE MUSEUM
For the first Time in his history after 28 years of existence since the 15th of march the Somme 1916 museum closed its doors after new governmental regulation against the Corona virus. This closing has dire consequences on our side. Being a private museum, run by an association non-profit law of 1901 we have no income from entry fees or from sales in the boutique. That's why we call upon you dear visitors and history lovers, to preserve our jobs and this place of history. Donations, even the smallest can help us get through this crisis.
