Lens’ 14 - 18 is an exhibition center for those events of the First World War which took place in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France. The audio guide provides four languages: French, English, German and Dutch. The guides contain the written content of the exhibition, with commentary on the previously unseen archive photographs and video and further information on specialist subjects.

Ideally situated between the major sites of the Cabaret Rouge British Cemetery, the Canadian National Vimy Memorial, the Maison Blanche German War Cemetery and the Notre-Dame-de-Lorette International Memorial and world war one cemetery, the Lens' 14 - 18, War and Peace History Centre is an unmissable stop on your pilgrimage and an essential part of any Great War remembrance visit to the Northern France.

Located in Souchez, at the heart of the Artois Front, the Lens’ 14 - 18 War and Peace History Center is dedicated to the history of the First World War in the Nord and Pas-de-Calais departments of France.

The international visitors center offers a unique collection of graphic material: animated maps, letters, archive photography (some hitherto unseen), period films and iconic objects from all around the world.

The exhibition represents the points of view of all the belligerent forces at the fronts of Artois and French Flanders: the Germans, French, British, and Belgians.

There are over 300 large photographs to help illustrate offensives, and the archive film footage allows visitors to fully immerse themselves in World War one (WWI).

The permanent exhibition, developed by an international scientific committee and directed by the French historian Yves Le Maner, provides the keys to understanding and interpreting the themes and chronology of World War I. It establishes a coherent account of the events which struck the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region between 1914 and 1918.

1 : The war of movement (August - October 1914)
2 : Trench warfare
3 : A deadly war of attrition
4 : The North under German occupation
5 : Return to war of movement (March - November 1918)
6 : Death at the front
7 : The « hell of the north » and reconstruction

At the end of the exhibition in the remembrance room you can use tablets to consult databases of the nearly 580,000 soldiers, of all nationalities, who fell in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region. Their names are engraved on the Notre-Dame-de-Lorette International Memorial which lists all the soldiers who died, were buried or commemorated within the Nord and Pas-de-Calais departments during the First World War.

An architectural manifesto, Villa Cavrois, the work of architect Robert Mallet-Stevens, a figure of the modernist school, was designed and built in Croix between 1929 and 1932 for Paul Cavrois, a textile industrialist from the Nord department, and his family.

Listed as a historical monument in 1990 thanks to citizen mobilisation, and acquired by the State in 2001, the huge restoration project implemented in 2003 has been completed in 2015. Your ticket allows you direct entry to the monument.

Make your own way to the Villa Cavrois in Croix and use your pre-paid ticket to skip the line and enjoy priority access. Once inside, set out on a self-guided tour and spend as long as you like exploring the magnificent castle.

First designed in 1929 and finished in 1932, the Villa is a family home created by the architect Robert Mallet-Stevens, a member of the Modernist movement. He was commissioned by Paul Cavrois, a textile industrialist from Roubaix and his wife.

The Villa follows a precise schema bringing together all the most advanced technologies of the period and was something of an aesthetic shock, the effects of which are still perceptible today.

All the interior was furnished using luxurious materials such as marble, exotic wood and polished aluminium. The furniture was designed by Mallet-Stevens who also devised the layout of the park. The very latest techniques were used. The furniture was sold off following the death of Maame Cavrois in 1986 and the Villla itself was sold in 1987. After standing abandoned for a long period during which it was vandalised, it was bought by the State in 2001, which has undertaken a vast campaign to save and restore the Villa to how it originally looked in 1932.

Thirteen years were needed to restore the villa and park to their original state of 1932. This exceptional project required specialised historical and archaeological research, and mobilised the expertise of highly skilled craftsmen to reproduce the designs of Mallet-Stevens as faithfully as possible.
