A strong partnership has developed between various Euro-regional museums and sites of remembrance from Ypres, in Belgium, to the Aisne, in France.
A strong partnership has developed between various Euro-regional museums and sites of remembrance from Ypres, in Belgium, to the Aisne, in France. This partnership is illustrated by the ‘Pass’Musées 14-18’, a leaflet of reduced-priced entry tickets, encouraging visitors to travel to the legendary sites of the First World War.
A union that will encourage new discoveries
The ‘Pass’Musées 14-18’ is a joint initiative that began in 2014 between five museums themed on the Great War. Two years later, the pass now includes the following 11 museums:
– In Flanders Fields Museum – Belgium – Plugstreet 14-18 – Comines-Warneton, Belgium – Passchendaele Museum – Zonnebeke, Belgium – Lewarde Mining History Centre (Exhibition ‘The Mining Region at the Heart of the Conflict’, officially approved by the Mission Centenaire) – Nord, France – Bullecourt 1917, Jean and Denise Letaille Museum – Bullecourt, France – The Wellington Quarries – Arras, Pas-de-Calais – The Somme 1916 Museum – Albert, Somme – The Thiepval Museum – Somme – The Historial, Museum of the Great War – Somme – The Cavern du Dragon/ Chemin des Dames Museum – Oulches la Vallée Foulon, Aisne
The idea is simple: visit one of the symbolic sites of the First World War and for each entrance ticket purchased receive a pass providing reductions for six (eleven?) other museums.
Use these reductions to discover the sites dedicated to the First World War from Belgium to the Aisne. The strength of the pass lies in its diversity; each museum is unique and filled with its own surprises to shed new light on the various aspects of the First World War.
