“Must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The museum is a MUST visit place while in Bastogne. We loved the history and how well everything was set up. The figures are almost life like. It costs 8 Euro each unless your military and then it's 6 Euro for the soldier only. The man that was working there wasn't very giving on information. But we enjoyed the history of everything.

“One of the better WWII museums I've visited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This museum is stacked full of World War II artifacts and exhibitions. If you are interested in the variety of weapons used by both sides, documents, pictures, means of transportations, and emotionally moving exhibits, you will love this museum. It's only a short distance from Luxembourg as well and there you can tour the American cemetery which contains the grave of General George C. Patton. It's well worth your time for a visit.

“small but worked out very realistically”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

in this ancient "Officer's Mess" several situations are put in scene of the daily civilian and military life during the battle of the bulge. Especially the puppets look very realistic which makes this museum standing out of the massive collections of memorabilia that you can find everywhere

Little musem with 'war' in basement. Interesting artefacts plus a wonderful dress made from parachute material! Expensive items to buy but a wonderful view of life in Bastogne

“Great museum.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

After watching the "Band of Brothers" we followed the 101st Airbourne route from Normandy to the Eagles Nest in Austria.
The Museum here was awesome. You really need to watch the Band of Brothers to appreciate the displays in the Museum.
