Went there with the family. Very interactive museum, with audio guide, 4D movie, touch screen... Kids ( and adults) loved it and we recommend. A historical visit to a must see location where a significant of the European history occurred.

Go to the museum. Then go up here. Rent virtual-reality glasses to engage with what happen there as the view from the top is great. You can see so much and you can put the whole Battle of Waterloo into prespective from up there.
