The Memorial de Verdun museum is located in the middle of the old World War I battlefields just north east of Verdun. The museum is a combination of a memorial site and a museum. The memorial was built in the 1960's and it  remembers both the French and German soldiers - as well as the civilian populations - lost during the World War I Battle of Verdun.
