Exhibition

Wars, science and technology: 1914-1945

From October 30th 2015 to September 30th 2016

Helfaut, France

This wide-ranging temporary exhibition offers audiences a chance to find out about the scientific and technological advances that accompanied the two world wars. Indeed, the extended duration of the first conflict would serve to highlight, in a spectacular and terrifying way, the radical technical transformations being deployed on the battlefields. When the war ended in late 1918, the belligerents left behind a combat environment that was technically very different to how it had begun in 1914, in terms of the widespread use of tanks, planes, submarines, gas and explosives. This phenomenon continued to an even greater extent during World War Two. The field of battle and the terms of military strategy were radically altered by the impact of these new forms of armaments.

The exhibition is offered in three languages: French, English and Dutch.

Every day non stop from 9 am to 6 pm

A war without photos

From June 27th 2016 to August 31st 2016

Étaples, France

This exhibition steers clear of habitual war clichés, instead striving to retrace moments in time captured by amateurs and professionals, a record of men and women whose lives were disrupted by these four years on the front line, at the rear or in occupied zones. Moving past the illustrations everyone has seen in history books, these shots show the human side of a deadly war in which shared and intimate moments are given pride of place over depictions of barbaric fighting.

Every day except Monday and Thursday , from 2 pm to 6 pm
