Re-opening of the Battle of Fromelles Museum – France

Word has reached us that the Museum of the Battle of Fromelles has been recognised as the 86th

Museum of France. Congratulations to our friends at the Museum, on their recognition as a Museum

of France. The work that the staff undertake is an ongoing tribute to those who fell at Fromelles in July 1916.

Reopening of the Museum of the Battle of Fromelles:

Museum curators are delighted to announce that the museum will re-open on Monday 4th March 2024.
The annual closure was to allow for important work to upgrade the museum’s entire ventilation system after meticulous storage and protection of everything that could be protected.

It was also an opportunity to carry out the annual dusting of the permanent exhibition to take care of the items in our collection and check their conservation status.

We also had maintenance  on the exhibition alarm system as well as brand new audio visual equipment for staging of presentations. The Museum is currently being cleaned to be ready to welcome visitors back from next Monday, March 4.

Find all the news and our upcoming events for the reopening of the museum on our social networks as well as on the “Agenda” page of the museum website.
