    Thats a sad one, it was a lovely museum full of impressive stuff spread over several floors I'd recommend to anyone. Always an enjoyable visit. Sad when its gone.

    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    That one was going to close about 5 years ago, when i was there, but it got a reprieve..................sadly not for long. There were a lot of "iffy" pieces there, but the bulk of it was nice, shame its gone, Just like the "tommy" cafe in Poziers, when madam Brulle gave it up in 96, and Dominique took it over, it was never the same, and boy what a collection she had!
