The museum tells the story of the Battle of Fromelles on 19th July 1916, explaining the way the Second World War unfolded between Armentières and La Bassée. Many objects were found on the battlefield where 8500 men fell, and are now on display for the public. Every year, a memorial honouring of the soldiers' sacrifice is held in the nearby military cemetery of Bois Faisan.
