“The most personal experience you will ever experience from a WW2 themed museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

The M&M's (nickname) greet you as if you are a part of their family. Matilde is usually the guide of the tour, and she eloquently explains each of the items along the tour. Marcel is the "man behind the scenes" and actually builds/creates displays for every item in the museum. You will enjoy the experience and will likely gain a couple new friends!

“First "WWII" museum with such a personal touch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

This museum is an unbelievable collection of personal items from American soldiers and Belgian locals from just prior to the battle of the bulge (and other WWII items). The owners are a lovely Belgian husband and wife. The husband was a little boy when 110 American soldiers came and stayed on his farm for about 3 weeks during 1944. They left behind a number of personal items as they headed off to the battle of bulge, many of whom never returned to reclaim their items. Marcel, the young boy at the time, now a mature man, has made 110 mannequins for the museum, some of whom are based on the soldiers that were there. The couple is unbelievably sweet, generous and caring and have amazing first hand stories of the war fought in that area. Marcel still remembers seeing a B17 go down in the distance in 1944 and riding his bike out to see the wreckage with his father. He and his wife have now placed a memorial at the site of the crash a well. This is a museum experience that you will not forget. (There is no charge for American visitors as Marcel still feels that the American soldiers who came to his town that day, saved the town and it's inhabitants)

“Awesome!”

We had a day trip to this museum and it was soooooo worth it. Especially if you are USA military. The couple that privately owns this are very passionate, knowledgable and proud of their work. Beautiful!!

“Special Museum, Wonderful people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

What a wonderful couple!!! So many memories shared, and such passion for the museum and the Americans that served over there. After leaving there you feel like you are family and that each person they are speaking about is one of there own. I will go back again and again just to take it all in. Thank you for sharing your love with us, we are better people for having you both in all our lives and sharing your story.

“If you're a military member or veteran you'll feel like an honored family member.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

I was stationed at Geilenkirchen NATO Air Base from 2006 - 2008. It was my privilege to visit the museum in late 2006. Over the next 18 months I helped transport Air National Guard members to the museum.

Marcel & Matilda (M&M to friends) Schmetz are warm, lovable people...as are ALL the Belgians I've met through them.

If you are a military veteran, and visiting Belgium, please stop in for a visit. It's well worth your time!!!
