- Museum or Interpretation Centre
The Duke of Wellington wrote and signed his victory report from this inn, in Waterloo, hence the name of the battle. The fight itself took place a little further on. These former headquarters are now a museum retracing the European political background before and after the fight through engravings, historical weapons and a rich collection of documents.
A rich historical collection
Walking through the museum, you will see the rooms where Wellington and his aide-de-camp settled down to prepare for the last battle. Visitors can also admire an exceptional selection of weapons, a French cannon, the Duke's cape and authentic maps and letters from both French and British armies.
Learning is fun! The Musée Wellington has therefore thought children might enjoy riddles to be solved throughout their visit. Parents can ask for the booklet at reception.
Exhibitions for all ages are organised through the year so do check what's on. Past events feature a retrospective celebrating Napoleon's 120th birth anniversary, an exhibition recreating the Emperor's life with Playmobil® characters...
