The knowledge, passion and enthusiasm of the guides here is unparalleled anywhere else I have been. 101st Airborne HQ was extremely interesting, as were the artefacts but I am sure many others will cover those elements on here, with all the interest in band of Brothers etc. For me the highlight was the extensive military vehicle collection, absolutely exceptional and...

I had been to the Barracks previously in 2008 and the improvements and expansion that have occurred in the past 8 years are beyond impressive. They have a great collection of WWII memorabilia and the tour is great. Joel was our tour guide and he is very knowledgeable about the events that happened many years ago in Bastogne. What a...

A member of the Belgium military provides a superb tour of the McAuliffe HQ that returns you to the events of Dec 1944. You will also see restored vehicles of the war. Truly amazing.

Definitely recommend this free tour. We went on a Wednesday at 14:00 (2:00pm). The military guide spoke both English and French and conducted the tour as such. The tour lasted 2 hours in total. We loved seeing the famous barracks where these historic moments happened!

The authentic locations where many of the events of the history of Bastogne occurred, including the office where "NUTS!" happened.

Bastogne Barracks (Belgium) has a lot of historical significance being the 101st Airborne HQ during WW2 Battle of the Bulge where they were encircled by the Germans until Patton's 3rd army managed to arrowhead through on 26 Dec 44 and led the Germans retreat. This barracks itself is a monument being the Band of Brothers HQ. Park your vehicle outside... More

I cannot stress this enough: do not miss the Barracks. This is hands down the best museum in Bastogne. First and foremost: it's not a tourist trap. It is 100% free of charge. You can't wander around on your own (it's still a military installation) but the tour (at 10:00 and 14:00 daily) is spectacular. First, you get to see... More

Probably the most enjoyable museum experience I've ever had. Scroll down through other reviews and you'll see almost nothing but praise and gushing recommendations. This is mostly down to the astoundingly knowledgeable, passionate and professional volunteer-soldier guides who take you through the exhibits on the base. As you make your way through the various rooms and halls try and stay... More

First of all, it's free! Yes free!! Secondly, as it's still officially a military establishment people aren't allowed to just wander around but have to go in groups with a guide. There was a tour starting at 14:00 so I went along. This is an excellent and thorough tour of what was the HQ to the 101st Airborne during the... More

To stand in the halls where history was made. There is talk that the Belgian government my elect to pull the army out of the base which would be the end of the barracks. I think it would be difficult to find a vehicle collection to rival what you will see here.
