Remembered Today:

Notre Dame de Lorette museum

Can anyone let me know whether the museum will still be open in the first week of December? And if so, is it worth a look? Am trying to incorporate a museum visit into our forthcoming trip but of course am finding that a lot of the places I want to go to aren't open that late in the year (e.g. Zonnebeke, Calais war museum, etc). Am a bit dubious about trusting web sites that give entrance fees in Francs!

Many thanks

I hope it will be open as it is well worth a visit. Don't believe all that you see though when it comes to the close proximity of the trenches, I believe they are a little fake. Enjoy what you see and keep out of the woods to the right they have never been searched.

We visited on the 13th November. Neither the cafe nor the museum were open.

Had a look around but could not see any signs to give opening times.

However, I still find the cemetery and church well worth the time in visiting.

Kind regards

December and January will find most museums closed in France.

As to is it worth a visit? Notre Dame and David's sister museum at La Targette have always been my favourite two museums on the French battlefields. A quite incredible personal collection.

You're right, they are not original trenches outside !

But it's true that the collection of Mr Bardiaux (the owner of Notre Dame de Lorette & La Targette museum) is fantastic.
