Museum or Interpretation Centre
The Musée du Souvenir 40-45, created by history lovers, will immerse you in the Second World War and tell you what happened in the Walloon Brabant region.
This tourist attraction has, since May 18, reopened to the public. Please check the opening times, booking tips and recommendations with them (either via their website or by contacting them directly) before visiting.
This exceptional private collection of wartime memorabilia, primarily recreates the hostilities of the Battles of Gembloux and the Dyle in May 1940. In the warren of rooms, there are remnants of Allied air crashes in the region, souvenirs from the Belgian resistance movement and the liberation of Brabant Wallon province by the US XIX Corps. Outside is one of the few remaining tanks erected by Belgium in preparation for war. Moe military vehicles can be admired in a nearby building.
This building is open all year but please book your visit in advance.
