Stumbled on the museum on a TA search and pleased we went. Paid a morning visit with the kids en-route to Calais. The kids grumbled at the forced history lesson but, in the end, actually found it interesting and informative. The short 10 minute film at the end was worth seeing as it gave a good sense of the huge... More

We really enjoyed this tour. The staff were great & had very good bi-lingual skills so despite having English & French people in our group we all got a really informative tour. It's fairly central & easy to get to & it's very sensitively done to explain the purpose for the tunnels & the battle of Arras. I would definitely... More

This was well worth a visit; when my wife finds it interesting (as a non historian) it must be good.Its another piece in the jigsaw if you like history.So interesting, what these soldiers did in the 14-18 war was unbelievable.

Didn't know these tunnels existed but decided to go take a look as we love underground tunnels. Did the full tour and found it very interesting. The staff, who spoke perfect English were very helpful and friendly and made the experience enjoyable.

A guidance thru the tunnels is very interesting. You will learn a lot of the WW1 history, especially about the Somme battle. Great!

We really enjoyed our trip to the tunnels. We visited late on a Friday in November and so didn't need to book and our group of four were the only ones doing the tour. It lasts about an hour and the tour guide and exhibits give you a real insight into how the tunnels were made and used during the... More

Very well organised with a helpful guide with good English though the audio gave all the info which was then largely inexplicably repeated by the guide. Basically the deal is you go down to the old limestone caves in a lift and then do a tour stopping every few minutes to watch a short video. There must have 15-20 videos... More
