  • Museum or Interpretation Centre

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.

This site accepts the Pass Musée.

Permanent exhibition

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 though:

  • Objects from Mons military history collections
  • Letters, notebooks, interviews relating the daily lives of civilians
  • 3D screenings, interactive table...

Temporary exhibitions

The site invites visitors to wonder about how reality is defined, how complex it can be though temporary exhibitions.

A museum at the heart of a memorial trail

The trail will take you through a selection of historical sites: Mons was the first Belgian town to be liberated by Americn troops.

You can continue the visit by visiting the  Saint-Symphorien Military Cemetery, a mere 10 km from the museum.

A historical tank

Stop by the Esplanade Dolez to admire a Sherman tank: this vehicle is a real symbol of the liberation of the region. 

The Liberation Route

The MMM is on the European Liberation Route. This itinerary retraces the milestones of modern Europe. It takes you to milestone locations, each marked by a large boulder and each with its own interesting and often moving story about the civilians and soldiers who lived and fought there during the end of the Second World War.
