About us

What started some 35 years ago as a hobby has grown over the years into a large collection of partly World War battlefield relics (all properly cleaned and well preserved), mostly items that have been retrieved personally from the various battlefield in Europe. The last decate we have also managed to acquire several unique pieces, which made us think that perhaps the whole collection should be visible to a wider audience. The collection is solely dedicated to the First World War, and with most of the displayed items of Western Front origin what better name to think of than that of The Western Front Museum Foundation (registered by notarial deed on the 29th. May 2000).
