A friend recommended me a visit at this war museum. I wasn't quiet sure what to expect. Especially when I saw the museum building, I was a little skeptical. The building was rather small and I was wondering, if that may be worth a visit....More

My husband and I decided on this side trip on our way to Brussels, and we're SO glad we did. This museum is an excellent tribute to those who sacrificed for the greater good. The visual displays follow a timeline given from four different perspectives,...More

Family with a toddler and a five year old. It was a little expensive getting in. 6 and under are free. 14 for adults, 12 if you are active duty. We enjoyed the headphones given to each family member. It kept the kids entertained while...More

This is one of the best Museum of its kind. The Museum hosts a couple of tanks used during the siege of Bastogne. The commentary is very helpful to have a better understanding on how the lives changed of the people who lived during the...More

The museum did a great job in order to tell the general story of the Second World War, while it let you immerse into the time and place due to 4 characters and their stories. Visiting takes quite some time. We ended up visiting for...More

Thoroughly enjoyed this museum. The only downfall is that there are no restrooms once inside the exhibits and you have to go all the way back to the entrance. This made having a baby and diaper changes a bit challenging. Overall great displays and really...More

In a rather comprehensive exhibit, this museum attempts to document the causes that went into the making of the greatest military conflict in recorded history and show its devastating effect on the lives of individuals and whole populations. That one exhibit alone will never be...More

Along with the Bastogne Barracks, we toured the War Museum. What truly impressed are the life-like animated dioramas of what it must have been like in the Ardennes, living in a foxhole with little winter gear or good. Another excellent one is the view from...More

If he fought in the battle his unit would be listed on the American memorial in Bastogne. As far as what each individual unit did I would look it up on the Internet. The memorial is at least 5 stories high in the shape of... More
We are planning on driving from Amsterdam to Bastogne, (about 200 miles) Is there a preferred or better route to take? Has anyone made the drive? Route E25 southbound and Route E19 to E411 to E46 northbound. We are planning on returning to Amsterdam several days later by driving back and stopping in Brussels. Any suggestions of which roads to take is appreciated. Patrk71

Hi Keith I am visiting Bastogne at the end of May as a surprise present for my husbands 40th. Neither of us have been to the area before and I am wondering if you could offer me any information on the area. We will only be there for 3 days so if you could recommend any tours, guides or general places to see I would really appreciate it. Also would I be right in thinking that we would be better off hiring a car? We will be flying into Charleroi airport in Belgium. Any kind of advise would be very much appreciated. Kind regards Edel

Hi Edel, lucky you, this is a wonderful area to visit, and yes you will need a car. But with only 3 days you have big choices to make. Do you want a variety of things to do or do you want to concentrate on WW11... More
