With authentic weapons, vehicles, uniforms, and artifacts, the Bastogne War Museum immerses you in one of the most dramatic periods of history. This cutting-edge visitor experience explores the causes, events, and consequences of World War II. It's a thrilling journey through world history and a stirring tribute to all who lost their lives.

Just a stone's throw from the real site of the Battle of the Bulge is Bastogne's War Museum, which contextualizes the intercontinental conflict, looking at the war through the eyes of ordinary people caught up in it.

The museum follows the experiences of an American and a German soldier, a Bastogne school teacher, and a 10-year-old boy, so at each stage you can see their thoughts and perspectives. The everyday horrors are brought to life with archive footage, high-tech recreations, and original artifacts.

You can also step inside pivotal moments of history, with detailed walkthrough scenes representing the Allied headquarters, the edge of the Ardennes Forest, and a civilian cafe amid the chaos of war.

You'll finish your journey with a visit to the Mardasson Memorial, the giant star-shaped tribute to the troops that lost their lives at the Battle of the Bulge.

With plenty of hands-on exhibits and thought-provoking testimonies, it's a profound history lesson that will change the way you understand WWII.

The storylines by four different experiences were incorporated within the static and ‘3 dimensional’ displays thoughtfully. The quality of the static displays were extraordinary. Finally the timeline of where the Battle of The Bulge fitted into the bigger picture of WWII was informative. Please don’t just visit the museum. The Bois de Paix Woods and 101st Airborne fox holes put the whole story into context.
