Was impressed by the vast Collections and the excellent audiotape (3 Euros) although I spent no more than 1 hour with that aid. In fact the museum has such enormous quantities of exhibits that I had to go for what I knew I wanted to learn more about: the fight for liberation from the French in 1830 and Belgium´s ordeals in WW I and WW II. I got my fill. Not only military/arny gear is displayed but also pieces of art and even of a cartoon. A temporary exhibtion with sculptures by Patrice Alexandre, "Momentum", was gripping and showed the horrors of war, and made a good contrast to the heroic figures from Days gone by. I was deeply moved.
It was possible to go by lift to the top floor, and from there climb two stairs and go outdoors to the top of the "triumphal arch" with a stunning view of the city of Brussels.
Staff incredibly helpful and service minded and they didn´t even laugh at my French. :-)
