This cultural centre, dedicated to the second world war, offers an incredible immersion into the Battle of the Bulge. 4 characters, civilians and soldiers, guide the visitors through the galleries, sharing their story as they go along. An interactive, modern presentation sure to wow children and adults alike.

The visit

The first part of the Bastogne Museum retraces the causes of the 1940-45 war, its milestones, life in Belgium during the German occupation... before detailing Hitler's last operation, the Battle of the Bulge. 2019 being the 75th anniversary, special commemorative events will be organised through the year.

The living memory of the Ardennes

Visitors follow the story of four different characters, each presenting a different side of the war  through anecdotes:

  • Robert Keane, an American soldier
  • Hans Wegmüller, a German soldier
  • Mathilde Devillers, a school teacher in Bastogne
  • Emile Mostade, a child from Bastogne

The galleries offer fascinating scenovisions   (immersive scenes appealing to all senses), created to recreate the atmosphere during the conflict as closely as possible.


Put your sports shoes on! There are 4 historical trails to enjoy from the Bastogne War Museum:

  • 2 walks (6 and 10 km)
  • 2 bike trails (10 and 20 km)

After visiting the museum

The Mardasson memorial is only a few minutes walk from the Bastogne War Museum. This star-shaped monument commemorates the friendship between Belgium and the United States and pays tribute to the soldiers having fought the Battle of the Bulge.
