The city of the Doudou invites you to discover the MMM or Mons Memorial Museum: a new cultural space retracing its story through the two world wars.
Tucked in what used to be a water machine, this interpretive centre of military history will take you on a fantastic trail from the Middle Ages to Shape (Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe), via the “Ancien Régime”, right up to the two World Wars.
The exhibits on display, selected from the city's rich military history collections, highlight fundamental questions about the relationship between the civilian and military population and lead to a wider reflection on war and society.
New from September 2019
A historical tank
