• Museum or Interpretation Centre

Haut-le-Wastia was the first village in the path of the German tanks after they had crossed the Meuse near Dinant. The Museum, spread across three floors of the old school, concentrates on the three-day battle in the area.

Among its contents are a magnificent relief map of the battle area, one of the rubber dinghies used to cross the river and a large collection of photographs, weapons, uniforms, medals and newspaper cuttings. There are life-size scenes and films that bring the battle to life. The museum also arranges tours to the battlefield, visiting the high ground on both sides of the river from where there are panoramic views of the battleground and the various crossing points to make it easier to visualise precisely how the battle was won and lost.
