Cote 204 American Monument and Museum at Château-Thierry

This is a 200m ² interpretation centre which was opened on May 27, 2018 in the Hill 204 Memorial, created to welcome visitors from 7 to 77 years old!

To commemorate the first engagements of the US Army in France, the US Government built this monumental portico with two rows of fluted pillars in 1929. It is the work of Paul Cret, consulting architect of the American Battle Monuments Commission. Inspired by ancient architecture, it reveals the names of the various battles in which the Americans were engaged in 1918, notably in the Aisne. In the centre stand two statues representing France and America. The first wears a breastplate and shield, the second holds a sword. You will be able to relive the 2nd Battle of the Marne here through an immersive visit using film, exhibitions and displays and be as close to the Americans of the Great War and you can be.
