This spectacular blast hole, 91 metres across and 21 metres deep, is what remains of a series of explosions which took place on 1st July 1916. They marked the beginning of the Battle of the Somme for British troops.
Located at the centre of Albert, a town that symbolises the Great War, this museum gives a realistic impression of the lives of soldiers in the trenches during the offensive of 1st July 1916. Sound effects, pictures, lights immerse visitors in the daily life of these soldiers. Essential viewing.
