- Museum & discovery
This museum, once an inn, served as headquarters to the Duke of Wellington the night of June 17th, 1815. Right before the famous battle of Waterloo...
Its collections retrace the European political background before and after the fight, putting forward engravings, historical weapons and documents.
A rich historical collection
Walking through the museum, you will see the rooms where Wellington and his aide-de-camp settled down to prepare for the last battle. Visitors can also admire an exceptional selection of weapons, a French cannon, the Duke's cape and authentic maps and letters from both French and British armies.
The Duke of Wellington wrote and signed his victory report from this inn, in Waterloo, hence the name of the battle. The fight itself took place a little further on.
