- Museum & discovery
The Bastogne War Museum offers a new way to remember the Second World War in Belgium, more specifically the major battles of the 1940-45 conflict.
The museum is just a stone's throw from the famous Mardasson Memorial, within the city of Bastogne, situated in the East side of the Belgian Luxembourg province.
The living memory of the Ardennes
Housed in a brand-new building displaying an adventurous architectural concept, the visit offers a fresh perception in a modern and interactive framework of the causes, events and consequences of World War II through the lens of the Ardennes Counteroffensive – the “Battle of the Bulge”. The new journey through the museum is dotted with flashbacks, genuine multi-sensory, three-dimensional scenes in a completely new format.
