I will never forget my visit to this museum. My father fought in the Battle of the Bulge, and I was very eager to see the renovated museum. We spent an entire day there, and it was a day very well spent! The displays and multimedia experiences were very well done, and having four people to identify with throughout the... More

The Bastogne War Museum is well worth a few hours visit. It displays a large number of WWII memorabilia and gives ample information regarding the Second World War as well as background information with regards to the events that led up to the Second World War. There are a number of theater presentations which are also worth visiting throughout the... More

A very moving and sober place where so many lost their lives in the Battle of the Bulge. Very easy to get to from Bastogne, just follow the signs from the city. War museum and cemetery are close, it does take some walking and time.

Great museum of WWII, well worth the trip to Bastogne from Brussels or any other city nearby. Museum seems quite new and is presented well.

One of the most well laid out and thoughtful museums I have been to. The Belgians really know how to make history come alive! Even for a wwII novice like me, the stories and movies really captured my attention and presented the history from many points of view. Would love to bring my future children here one day! And if...

One of the best and most interactive museums I have ever been to. There is so much history here, and the way it is told is purely amazing. Be ready to spend 3-4 hours there listening to the stories of four different lives and how they all intersect. Audio and 3D theater effects are purely amazing. I highly recommended everyone... More

Great new, interactive and very interesting museum. Good parking, great tour and your audioguide picks up the signal when you stand in front of something. So things you don't want to do, you won't get an explanation of. Nice information. Cafe is not really good (few choices) so bring your own or eat in village. Mardasson monument is just a... More

This museum was excellent and took us through the years before the war and to its end, complete with 3 videos on personal stories around the Battle of the Bulge. The videos used special effects like 3D glasses and moving scenery and were very well done. Throughout the museum, audio of 4 specific people, one boy, one female resistance fighter,... More

The staff was veel unfriendly and kept on reminding us to go home because it was almost closing time. They sell you a beer and then expect u to leave immediately afterwards. Unpleasant visit!

This museum is one of the best ways to learn more about the 2nd worldwar in general and more specific the battle of the Ardennes (Battle of the Bulge). A good combination of interactive things and old artifacts. The audio guide really helps to get informed, only disadvantage is that keeps on telling the same stories (that you cannot skip).... More
