    This was my second visit with my 94 year old friend. Her father and my grandfather both endured this horrendous war. The lighting and the musky smell of the museum adds to the realism of what it must have been like to suffer trench warfare. The museum is full of detail which you may miss on a single visit. The stories that the guide tells of are real learning experiences such as the origins and tragedies surrounding the epic story of Peter Pan or of the real life tale of Tirpitz, the Pig. The museum is still growing and the proprietor is active in seeking out new exhibits such as discarded medals; pieces of shell and you can even get a lost relative immortalized by having a plaque made in tribute to their sacrifices. It is certainly a good experience for eager-to-learn children.
