This museum is a little gem, really gets to the essence of the Battle of the Bulge and you can spend a couple of hours here. The guy on reception is very friendly and helpful, he doesn't speak much English so you have to speak...More

Especially interesting for (sons and daughters of) WWII veterans and those who are interested in what went on during the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944 when the snow conditions were atrocious.
