I had long wished to visit the area and I finally did this in December 2019. I'll try not to repeat what has been written before - but essentially, the museum focuses on the German side of the Battle of Bulge and a lot of the artefacts and uniforms were found in the immediate area of La Gleize - which is as far as Peiper and his tanks got. Dioramas with mannequins display a variety of original SS, Heer, Fallschirmjäger and Luftwaffe uniforms. There are certainly US exhibits - both in display cases and with dioramas, but the focus is on the German aspect of the campaign. I'm a militaria collector as well as a WW2 tour guide and I have to say, this is an impressive display. Did a mention there is a Königstiger out the front? :-) I got here late in the day so it was not so busy. Staff were friendly and approachable.

A very nice small museum, a lot of artefacts from WWII from both sides of the conflict. We liked it.

Went to this museum with expectations to learn about the Battle of the Bulge. Unfortunately, the museum is more a collection of artifacts found in the area, mostly German items, with really no explanation of what they are. Not much of a timeline or explanation or discussion of the battle. A much better museum is in Bastogne, don't waste your time with this one unless you like looking at lots of German uniforms and dioramas.

This military museum really is splendid. A superb collection of weapons, uniforms, assorted military equipment, all relevant to the combat around the village of La Gleize in December 1944. Well worth a visit, plus of course the King Tiger outside.

This place isn’t a big museum but what a museum it is. Apart from the obvious king tiger outside, inside has a lot of great displays and items, well worth a visit.
